Turning Over 


Although it is against our interests to 
advocate any reduction in the production 
of books, we can come to no other con- 
clusion when thinking of the present 
position of the book trade than this : 
Too many books spoil the book market. 
It is an ancient conclusion and an un- 
profitable one. Every publisher admits 
its truth, but no publisher will admit it is 
true concerning his own productions. 

The fact is, although nominally one, 
every publisher, and every publishing 
concern, consists of two unequal parts — 
there is the fascinating literary side and 
the humdrum business side — and it is this 
dual character which is mainly responsible 
for the over-production of books. The 
literary or producing side is always, or 
nearly always, too strong for the business 
or disposing side ; it is little use for the 
latter to cry, " Stop ! give us breathing 
time, come and look at the stock rooms, 

hear what our town and country travellers 
say." No, hope springs eternal in the 
better part of the publisher's heart and 
drowns the still small voice of the, by 
experience, wiser part. If the matter is 
considered from the point of view of the 
greatest good for the greatest number, 
perhaps it is a good thing that the 
publisher's hopes for success in publishing 
new books are so little daunted by dis- 
appointment in the sale of old ones ; but 
we refer to the book trade side of the 
question. In truth, the fascination 
of publishing is endless. To be the first 
to see a new author, to advise and 
suggest, to help materially in the pro- 
duction of what may presently be a 
welcomed addition to the world's litera- 
ture, to be continually bowling at the 
wicket of success : what wonder that the 
" no balls," " wides," the unkind cuts of 
the critics, the catches missed and the 
drives mto oblivion are forgotten when 
the roar of applause conies at last. 
And provided it comes often enough to 
cover his losses, success, though it leaves 
little profit, leaves the publisher happy 
in the pursuit of fortune in perhaps the 
most fascinating of professions. 

Probably every publisher has deter- 
mined, like everybody else, to turn over a 
new leaf in this New Year — many new 
ones in fact — to contemplate anything 
else would conjure up visions of the 
extinction of new literature — but we 
venture to suggest, with not the slightest 
semblance Of dictation, that to turn over 
old leaves might be profitable — to glance 
back at the serried ranks of " New Book " 
columns in the P.C. — or, better, to wait a 
week or two for our annual volume of the 
English Catalogue of Books made up 
from those lists and other sources. 

Although we say so, these annual 
volumes are an admirable assistance to a 
publisher. By turning over their pages 
he can very easily ascertain what books 
have been published on any subject, who 
wrote them, who published them, their 
size, price, and date of publication. It 
is certain that publishers cannot re- 
member or even know all the books that 
have been published on a certain subject ; 
and, when a new book on that subject is 
offered, to be able to ascertain in a few 
minutes exactly what books already 
exist may save heavy loss — in any case 
it puts the publisher in the strong position 
of making the author justify the exist- 
ence of his work and its chances of 
success against rivals already established ; 
it is also an invaluable guide in deciding 
questions of size and price. 

The best way, perhaps, to use the 
English Catalogue for this purpose would 
be, when sending a manuscript to a 
reader, to send also a list of works on the 
subject in order that he may examine 
at any rate those which appeared likely 

to be formidable rivals — the reader 
would deserve, and doubtless get, an 
increased fee, but it would be a cheap 
insurance against the most common 
cause of loss to publishers : the attempt 
to plant a new book successfully in a field 
already full. 

What is the most solid argument a 
publisher's traveller has to contend with 
when offering a new work to a book- 
seller ? Obviously it is another book on 
the same subject which he has already in 

We hope it will not be imagined that 
our suggestion as to this particular use 
of the English Catalogue is made in order 
to advertise it and induce publishers to 
buy it— it is already bought by prac- 
tically everyone publishing many books. 
It is made in the belief that it offers 
a practical way of lessening what every- 
one admits to be the crushing burden of 
the book trade— the production of books 
which are not wanted. 

Notes and Announcements 

The awful calamity which has fallen 
upon the Italians has thrown a deep 
shadow on the whole world. The close 
and friendly relations between Italy and 
Great Britain make our sympathy all the 
deeper, and it is very gratifying to find 
our war-ships among the first to bring 
such relief as may be possible. 

Publishers looking for a perfect paper 
on which to print a book worthy of it, 
might look at that used by Mr. Heine- 
mann in his " Life of James McNeill 
Whistler." It will give them an oppor- 
tunity, too, to admire some of the best 
printing that even Messrs. Ballantyne, 
Hanson & Co. have ever done. And 
last, but not least, the chance glancing 
at a page or two will lure them on to 
reading one of the most interesting 
biographies ever published. The good 
stories are innumerable. 

A Frenchman in Chelsea taught art 
and sold tapestry. Whistler bought a 
number of things from him. " But vill 
he pay, zis Vistlaire, vill he pay ? " the 
man asked ; and, at last one evening he 
went to Eindsey Row. A cab was at & the 
door. The maid said Whistler was not 
in, but the man heard his voice and 

pushed past, and said afterwards : 

" Upstairs, I find him, before a little 
picture painting, and behind him ze 
bruzzers Greaves holding candles. And 
Vistlaire he say : ' You are ze very man 
I vant ; hold a candle ! ' And I hold a 
candle. And Vistlaire he paint and he 
paint, and zen he take ze picture, and he 
go downstairs, and he get in ze cab, and 
he drive off, and we hold ze candle, and I 
see him no more. Mon Dieu, ' il est 
terrible, ce Vistlaire ! " 

But he was paid the next day. 

The Nineteenth Century and After for 
January contains " Is Invasion Possible " 
by Major-General Frank S. Russeil 
C.M.G., and "Our Military Weakness," 
by Colonel the Earl of Erroll, K.T. 



Publishers' Circular 

January 2, 1909 

His many friends and the countless 
admirers of his writings will regret to hear 
that Mr. W. Clark Russell has been seriously 
ill for two months — and is so still — from a 
combination of neuritis, gout and arthritis. 
The great novelist of the sea has weathered 
so many storms — his life for thirty years 
has been one long courageous fight 
against ill-health — that we trust his 
resolute spirit will conquer again. 

Harper's Magazine for January is an 
extremely interesting number. It con- 
tains an account from her own pen of 
" The First Ascent of Mount Huscaran," 
by Miss Annie S. Peck. If Mount Hus- 
caran is not the highest mountain in the 
world it is next door to it. Alpine climbers 
will appreciate the difficulties when two 
of the best Swiss guides Miss Peck could 
get were almost daunted ; ha fact, one 
retired. It is a modest record of magni- 
ficent pluck. The same number has an 
equally modest account of the Charge of 
the Light Brigade by one who charged 
with it. 

A new book by M. Camille Flam- 
marion, the delightful writer and dis- 
tinguished French scientist, will be 
published on January 4th by Mr. T. 
Fisher Unwin. It is entitled, " Mysterious 
Psychic Forces." and its purpose is to 
show what truth there is in the pheno- 
mena of table turnings, table movings 
and table tappings, hi the communica- 
tions received therefrom, in levitations 
that contradict the laws of gravity, hi 
the moving of objects without contact, hi 
unexplained noises, or the stories told of 
haimted houses. 

Mr. Unwin will publish on January 
4th a novel entitled, " The Ways of 
Men," by Mr. Herbert Flowerdew, author 
of " The Third Kiss " and " A Celibate's 
Wife." " The Ways of Men " is the story 
of a girl's hazardous adventure hi mar- 
riage and of a man who was asked to 
choose between love and fidelity on the 
one hand, and on the other wealth and an 
important social position. 

Miss Florence Warden's new novel, 
" The Baronet's Wife," will be published 
on January 4th by Mr. Unwin. 

" We sold more six-shilling novels on 
Christmas Eve than on any two days of 
the year," Mr. Frank Denny, of the well- 
known Strand bookselling firm, told an 
Express representative. " Literally whole 
rows of them went. They were bought in 
threes and fours, though preference was, 
of course, shown to the established 
authors. From this year's experience, 
I should say that the fashion of giving 
books as presents is growing." 

Messrs. Swan Sonnenscluin i\: Co. 
will publish in January a volume of 
articles by l he late Harry Quilter, en- 
titled " Opinions of Men, Women and 
Tilings." This will contain reprints of 
some magazine articles which were much 
commented on at the time they were 
published, and also several unpublished 
articles as outspoken as anything written 
by Mr. Quilter. 

Cassell's Saturday Journal for January 
9th will contain the opening instalment 
of a new serial by Henry Farmer, the 
well known and popular writer. This 
story, the editor informs his readers, will 
" be one of the strongest ever published 
in the paper, and is likely to attract con- 
siderable attention." The trade are 
advised to note this issue and prepare 
for an increased demand. A handsome 
coloured poster will be supplied by the 
publishers on application. 

The popularity of the Story-Teller 
remains undiminished, in spite of the 
heavy competition it has met, and 
retailers should not fail to order the 
February number. 

His Majesty the King has graciously 
accepted a specially bound copy of the 
New Rules of Golf as authorised by the 
Royal and Ancient Golf Club, of which 
His Majesty is Patron, sent him by the 
authorised publishers, Messrs. W. C. 
Henderson & Son, University Press, St. 
Andrews. The New Rules are published 
in several editions and in several styles 
of bindings for pocket and Club use, and 
came into force on January 1st. 

It is interesting to note, hi connection 
with the recent award of the Nobel Prize 
for literature, that " Rudolf Eucken's 
Philosophy of Life," by Prof. W. R. 
Boyce Gibson (A. & C. Black) is already 
in a second edition. Prof, and Mrs. 
Gibson have almost ready for publication 
in the spring, Eucken's " The Meaning 
and Value of Life." 

The " Illustrative Election," organ- 
ised by the Proportional Representation 
Society, aroused considerable interest. 
A full account of the election appears hi 
No. 9 of Representation and, in view 
of the Committee of Inquiry promised 
by Mr. Asquith, we are glad to direct the 
attention of our readers to it. 

The English Department of the Yale 
University has made the subject of their 
Jolm Hubbard Curtis #100 prize conti st 
" Critical Essays on the Novels of Wil- 
liam de Mordan." 

Messrs. Sealy, Bryers & Walker will 
issue this month two important books. 
" The Predominant Partner — His Rights 
and His Duties," by J. Shaw Mulhollaud, 
B.L., Inner Temple, is a brilliant essay 
on the present social, political and 
economic condition of Ireland. Dealing 
with Govermental methods in Ireland, 
this book will be a revelation to English- 
men, for whilst showing hi what respects 
the Predominant Partnership has been 
detrimental to Ireland, lie admits its 
desirability. " Midland Septs and The 
Pale," by F. R. M. Hitchcock, give to the 
Midland of Ireland a history of its 
ancient families. Mr. Hitchcock is 
already known as the author of " Types 
of Celtic Life and Art," a critical con- 
sideration of the Celtic social systems, 
1 and many other important volumes. In 
the present he treats fully of the relations 
of the various families with the inhabi- 
tants of the Pale. 

Measrs. Constable are about to publish 
the first volume of a series of Con- 
cordances, which will be of the greatest 

; interest to students of English literature. 
The work appears under the auspices of 
The Concordance Society, which was 
organised at Yale University hi 1906. 

, The author chosen for this first volume 

! is Thomas Grav. 

Messrs. Constable will publish imme- 
diately an abridged and less expensive 
edition^ of "The Life of Sir Charles 
Bright," the distinguished pioneer of 
ocean telegraphy, whose name will always 
be associated with the laying of the first 
trans - Atlantic cable. In its original 
form the work was recognised as a solid 
contribution to biography. This edition 
has been revised by Mr. Charles Bright 
F.R.S.E. ' 

Mr. R. W. Seton-Watson, who signs 
himself " Scotus Viator," has a new 
volume coming from Messrs. Constable, 
entitled, " Racial Problems in Hungary." 
It is a discussion, based on personal 
observation, of the racial problems of 

Mr. Martinus Nijhoff, Bookseller, of 
The Hague, publishes in English two 
interesting works by J. J. M. De Groot 
Professor in the University of Ley den 
on Chinese Religion, Philosophv, Folk- 
lore and Politics. One is entitled 
" Sectarianism and Religious Persecution 
in China. A page in the history of 
religions." It is an attempt, and claims 
to be the first, to trace the reasons for the 
intolerance of the Chinese versus the 
Christians hi China. The other work is 
" The Religious System of China. Its 
ancient forms, evolutions, history and 
present aspect ; manners, customs and 
social institutions connected therewith." 
This work is an attempt to depict the 
Chinese religion as it is reallv practised 
by the nation, and to sketch on a broad 
scale its influence on domestic and social 
life. It is the fruit of an intimate contact 
with the Chinese race for several years. 
Since first setting foot on the wide" field 
of sinological studies, the author has 
adopted a course of systematically com- 
mitting to paper whatever customs, 
usages and religious observances pre- 
sented themselves to his view either in 
the Middle Kingdom or the transmarine 
colonies where Chinese emigrants have 
settled ; no opportunity of acquiring an 
insight into the different phases of social 
and religious life of the Chinese has been 
i allowed to escape him. 

The leader of the Anglo-American 
Polar Expedition, Captain' Ejnar Mik- 
kelsen, whose book, " Conquering the 
Arctic Ice," will be published by Mr. 
Heinemann on January 12th, is at present 
in Copenhagen, where he lectured last 
week before the Geographical Society of 
Denmark, amongst his audience being 
the King and Queen of Denmark and 
other members of the Roval Familv. 
Previous to tliis he has lectured on his 
Arctic travels at Brussels. Antwerp. 
Liege, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Leiden 
and the Hague.

" The Publishers' Circular" Annual Summary of the 
Numbers and Classes of Books Published in 1908 

Like most businesses, publishing has suffered a slight depression during the past year, 
although it is still well above any year previous to 1907. The total number of New Books 
recorded as published in 1908 is 9,821, a decrease of 93 as compared with 1907. This decrease 
is inconsiderable, but on analysing the figures it will be seen that there also has been a fall 
in the average class of book published. Thus in New Books (as opposed to New Editions) 
there has been a decrease of 189 during the year, while there has been an increase of 96 in 
New Editions. That is to say, a considerably greater proportion of cheap reprints have 
appeared. This has been the case especially in Fiction, Religion and Philosophy, and Political 
and Social Economy ; and an example is afforded by the Fiction published during July, 
when 177 books were issued, of which 88 or practically 50 per cent, were New Editions. Taking 
the year's output class by class there are the following decreases : Religion, 28 ; Educa- 
tional, 60; Political and Social, 92; History, 13; Year Books, 24; Medicine, 32; and 
Belles Lettres, 79 ; while there are increases in the following classes : Fiction, 5 ; Law, 17 ; 
Arts and Sciences, 55 ; Voyages, 49 ; Poetry, 42 ; and Miscellaneous, 67. The information 
to hand seems to indicate an increased output during the coming year, the figures for December, 
1908, showing an increase of 26 per cent, over the previous year, and no doubt the total for 
the year 1909 will run into five figures.

Our Book Trade Notes 
from Glasgow 

By " Mungo " 

The rush of Christmas trade is over for 
another year, and the bookseller has 
now time to look round his stock and 
consider whether or not his autumn 
buying has been justified, and if full 
advantage has been taken of the oppor- 
tunity the season offers to clear : his 
shelves of miscellaneous books. $ 

When the public confine their buying 
to one short week there is a tendency to 
fall back on two or three books which 
have been declared favourites ; this is 
especially obvious in the case of fiction, 
where the field of choice is so wide and 
varied. And in Glasgow, from among 
several good novels, Mary Johnston's 
" Lewis Rand " takes the first place, 
while " Stewart of Lovedale," by/^Dr. 
Wells, shares with Dr. Robertson Nicol's 
" Ian Maclaren " a similar position in 

" A Midsummer Night's Dream," 
with. Mr. Rackham's illustrations, has 
been the most popular of the larger 
colour books ; in fact, some customers 
complain of its being too popular, one 
remarking that he had received six 
copies, each given by a relative. There 
is something reminiscent here of the 
refrain to one of the songs sung by the 
Admiral in " Pinafore." 

The book, the sales of which will 
head all others in Glasgow, is the attrac- 
tive edition of Ramsay's " Reminiscences 
of Scottish Life and Character," issued 
by Mr. Foulis with H. W. Kerr's illustra- 
tions in colour. A large sale was expected 
for this volume, but I think the demand 
must have astonished even its optimistic 

The feature of this season, however, is 
the increasing popularity of those book- 
lets that are taking the place of Christmas 
cards, and here again Mr. Foulis gets 
honourable mention, for he combines 
taste in selection with taste in produc- 
tion, and the enormous sale which these 
little books sent out by him have had 
proves that he has hit the public fancy. 
The smaller shilling booklets, as published 
by Messrs. Harrap, Messrs. Seigle, Hill and 
Messrs. Nimmo in velvet calf or in what 
a bibliophile friend of mine unkindly 
referred to as " pussy-cat covers," are 
also making a place for themselves as 
substitutes for cards. 

Notwithstanding the mikind remark 
of my friend (who, by the way, is also a 
poet, using that term in its wider 
sense) these booklets are infinitely more 
satisfactory remembrancers to send to 
one's friends at Christmas time than the 
once-popular card. They are not for 
adults in literature, but have a missionary 
influence, and an essay of Emerson's, a 
few " chips " from Marcus Aurelius, or a 
selection from a popular poet, may lead 
the reader to become better acquainted 
with the author's work. 

On the whole, the Christmas trade in 
Glasgow has been satisfactory ; after a 
long spell of comparative depression 
business came away early in the month, 
and although the difficulty in selling the 
larger books still remains, the returns 
cannot be found fault with, and the 



The Publishers' Circular 

January 2, 1909 

increasing number of net books tides over 
a period of slack trade in a way that did 
not obtain some ten years ago. It is 
xuifortnnate that the facility with which 
landlords can add fifty pounds to the 
rent cannot be dealt with as successfully 
as was the discount system. 

The Passing of English 
Literary Treasures to 

WE have often pointed out the fact that 
there is an insatiable demand among 
wealthy Americans for the rare treasures 
of English literature. There is no doubt 
that the purchaser of Lord Amherst's 
splendid collection of Caxtons was Mr. 
J. Pierpont Morgan, so those sixteen 
items including the earliest book 
printed in English have gone to 
the American shore. The world 
now knows that 

John P. Morgan he 
Buys every rare book that he can 

He has bought all of Horace Wal- 
pole's letters, as well as many manu- 
scripts of Byron, Shelley, Samuel 
Johnson, Dickens, Thackeray, Lamb, 
Mary Stuart, Lord Cornwallis, Swift, 
Napoleon, Walter Scott and many 
others. His library contains an unsur- 
passed collection of fine bindings, 
including ancient books in ivory, gold 
and enamel set with gems. The 
Caxtons, Aldines and Gutenbergs, the 
Elzevirs and Wynkyn de Wordes ; 
the collections of first editions, 
including the best obtainable copies 
of all that bibliophiles most approve ; 
the volumes with rich historical 
associations, the missals and Prayer 
Books, the early Bibles, the rare 
prints, the extra-illuminated books, 
the Chaldean and Babylonian tablets 
make up the realisation of a collec- 
tor's dream 

"It is too much to expect," 
the New York Times says, " that 
this treasure house will be thrown 
open to public examination. But 
a complete catalogue of its collec- 
tions, with plates, prepared by an 
expert bibliophile, would be of the 
greatest public value and interest." 

A Directory of A merican 
"Publishers " (?) 

WE have received from the office of the 
New York Publishers' Weekly what it 
calls " A Directory of Publishers " — i.e., 
those issuing books in the United States 
from January 1st, 1905, to December 
31st, 1907. There must be 3,750 names 
in this Directory, and a very brief 
examination of the list shows that the 
use of the word " publisher " is somewhat 

For instance, because a college or 
university issues a magazine it is inserted 
in this list of publishers as a publisher. 
Then Mr. Wellborn, Librarian of the 
Georgia State Library, published some 
small volume, and so figures in the list 
as a publisher. It is a case of ex uno 
disce omnes with a vengeance — e.g., 
Vacuum Oil Co., Tennessee Valley Perti 

lizer Co. It is certain that these and a 
great number of others in this list are 
not exactly publishers in the sense that 
we use the word in this countrv. 

Mr. Benjamin Leach 

The many friends and admirers of 
Mr. B. Leach, who for many years 
represented Messrs. Ward, Lock & Co., 
Ltd., both on the road and as depart- 
mental manager, will be interested to 
learn that he is severing his long con- 
nection with this house to take up an 
important position with Messrs. Cass< 11 
& Co., Ltd. From the general knowledge 
of liis activity and untiring energy there 
is no reason to doubt success will follow 
him hi his new sphere. 

A Year of Books 

THE many people who never quite know 
how to use books of reference should be 
interested to learn of the announcement 
by Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons. Ltd., of the 
immediate publication of a s( cond revised

" The Life of 
James McNeill Whistler"* 

If the beastly words " Presentation 
Copy " had not been stamped into the 
title page of this beautiful book we should 
have nothing but praise for it. Here is 
another excellent good testimonial to a 
publisher. After giving a long list of 
people to whom they are grateful the 
authors of this fascinating biography of 
Whistler say : — 

" One special word of thanks, 
however, we must add. To no one 
do we owe more than to our publisher, 
Mr. William Heinemann, who has 
drawn upon his own friendship with 
Whistler to enrich us, who has aided 
us with his counsel, worked with 
us through difficulties, and faced 
the not light task of reading our 
book in manuscript and proof, 
giving us the advantage of his 
criticism and advice." 

These testimonials to publishers 
are highly satisfactory, and we like 
keeping a record of them. Cicero 
says — we take it on trust from 
some book we were reading recently 
— that all men by a certain hidden 
faculty approve or condemn works 
of art or letters. What Whistler's 
exact position will be in fifty years 
time who can say ? but it is quite 
certain that the interest of this 
biography is greatly due to the 
whole-hearted manner in which his 
biographers speak up for him. Not 
Constable or even Turner had 
Whistler's genius for English land- 
scape, and as for Rembrandt, why 
Whistler " surpassed Rembrandt in 
Iris own (Dutch) subjects." It is 
this point of view, Whistler first 
and the rest nowhere, which makes 
this biography so interesting. You 
must like what Whistler liked if he 
was to like you. Whistler used to 
make buck-wheat cakes. He never 
spoke again to one man who 
ventured to dislike them. Whistler 
was doubtless a great artist ; he was 
the little David who went out to 
slay the British School of Art Piiilis- 
tines with Ruskin the Goliath at 
their head, and the tale of how 
he slew them makes excellent reading ; 
and he slew them, of that the readtr is 
not left hi doubt for a moment, and the 
proof — often mentioned — is that aj" Noc- 
turne," "knocked off" hi a day, which 
he sold for twenty guineas you could not 
now buy for two thousand. For a long 
time the British public did not take the 
American artist seriously — it appears to 
have been difficult for his best friends to 
do so — they do not seem quite to know 
whether his continual contempt and dis- 
dain for tilings English was real or 
affected : probably it was a mixture. 
It seems to us that there is a great deal 
to be said for Whistler's view that to be a 
competent critic of painting a man must 
be able to paint ; and that in bringing his 
action against Ruskin he was fighting 
for the freedom of art — as others have

fought for the freedom of letters. To 
bring out " harmonies in colours " may 
be said to have been Whistler's aim in 
art — he said so of the famous " Battersea 
Bridge by Moonlight," in the Ruskin 
trial, the " Nocturne in Blue and Silver," 
No. i. It is for this reason that in the 
great profusion of black-and-white re- 
productions in these fine volumes, those 
which attract most and appear to best 
represent the artist are his portraits. 
Colour was not to be thought of, and 
probably many of these reproductions are 
given mainly as identifying records. But 
the portraits are often wonderful, es- 
pecially in the photogravures, the chief 
loss being in the effect of colour on the 
lips, as in the delicious portrait of Miss 
Cicely Alexander, of Mrs. Huth, Mrs. 
Ley land, &c, in which the lips are a dark 
level smudge instead of transparent 
colour as in the original. This defect, 
due to the mechanical process, is more 
apparent by comparison with the superb 
portrait of Lady Archibald Campbell, 
our preference in the whole collection, as 
is the portrait of Sarasate among the 
men ; these two being originally " arrange- 
ments in black " naturally lend them- 
selves better to black-and-white repro- 
duction. A characteristic of all these 
reproductions is that they improve under 
enlargement and seem to come nearer 
to the original. 

To Mr. Heinemann, of course, the 
production of this work has been a real 
labour of love — from every point of view 
it is a testimony to that ; ; and we can 

assure our friends the booksellers that the 
first edition- of this book is going to be 
sought after. The writers, Joseph Pen- 
nell and Elizabeth Pennell, have suc- 
ceeded admirably in reproducing the 
man and in making us interested hi him 
and his life, in spite of his porcupinish 
attitude to almost everything English ; 
as they point out it was the opposition of 
the England of his day to him which made 
him — and it is an old English char- 
acteristic to begin by laughing at a man 
and end by making a god of him. To 
write a biography of Whistler, the master 
of the art of making enemies, so soon afte r 
his death, must have " given to think," 
as the French say, before it was entered 
upon. From the impartial outsider's 
point of view it has been done with 
great good taste and judgment ; some 
who are not in a position to be im- 
partial will naturally not agree with 
this view. 

Whistler was a born fighter, and those 
who got his blows are not likely to forget 
them — especially when repeated in this 
handsome style. Though dead he yet 
hits — harder than ever. And yet it is 
impossible to read this book without 
feeling that Whistler was what his fellow 
cadet at West Point Military Academy, 
now General Loomis L. Langdon, found 
him, viz. : "a most genial and con- 
siderate friend, an honest and fascinating 
gentleman, who seemed always to move 
in a sunny atmosphere that brightened 
the lives of his friends and was to them 
like' an inspiration." 

The Homes and Haunts of 
Henry Kirke White 

Mr. H. B. SaxTon, of King Street, Not- 
tingham, has published* at 5s. net an 
edition — limited to 500 copies — of a very 
interesting and well illustrated work, 
entitled, "The Homes and Haunts of 
Henry Kirke White, with some Account of 
the Family of White of Nottingham and 
Norfolk." by John T. Godfrey and James 
Ward. The volume was suggested by 
the Centenary Banquet to the Memory of 
the Poet held at Nottingham in Novem- 
ber, 1906. The book is better than its 
title, because, in addition to very full 
and well arranged details respect ing the 
homes and haunts of the poet, there is 
an extremely interesting memoir of 
White constructed chiefly from his own 
letters, with regard to which Sir N. 
Harris Nocolas observes : — " So fre- 
quently are the allusions to himself hi 
those letters as well as in his poems, 
that he may be almost considered as 
an Autobiographer. " What is actually 
new in the book is mainly connected 
with the history of the White family 
and illustrations of places he lived 
at or which were well known to him. 
We are sure the industry and devotion 
of the compilers will be rewarded by the 
thanks of all who treasure the literary 
remains and sweet memory of the young 
poet who gave such promise of being a 
great one. " We have taken this pains,

It is proposed to make this a comprehensive history of hunting-, and one of the most elaborate publications ev er devoted 
to any single branch of sport. The work will be divided into three sections — the first of which will deal with the historj 
of hunting generally — and will cover all the ground of which there is any record whatever with regard to hunts, hunting 
men, and hunting countries. The second section is to be a treatise on the history of the Hunts of Great Britain and 
Ireland and on the men who have founded and have maintained them. The third and last section will constitute one of 
the principal features of the work, containing the biographies of the leading Masters and Hunting Men in 
Great Britain and Ireland 

Each article in ihe book will be handsomely illustrated by means of engravings of the principal packs of hounds. These, 
with portraits of the Masters and Members of the various Hunts, will bring the number of illustrations to about 1,400, 
including about fifty full-page portraits of men well known in hunting circles, reproduced by means of the finest 
photogravure process from excellent photographs. The articles will include accounts of the chase of the Fox and Otter, 
Drag Hunting, Beagling, Harriers, Hounds and their Breeding, and Hunters and their Breeding; descriptions 61 
remarkable runs in the history of hunting, and a dissertation on hunting equipment 

In addition to all these features it will contain an International section, including a description of hunting and hunting 
establishments in all parts of the world. In short, no effort will be spared to make this book the standard work of 

reference upon all matters connected with the chase

not for the present age, but a future ; 
many things which were known to our 
grandsires are lost to us, and our grand- 
children will search in vain for many 
facts which to us are most familiar." 
If only Ben Jonson or someone had done 
the same for the life and homes and 
haiuits of Shakespeare. This reference 
to a future age reminds one of White's 
lines, in which he forestalled Macaulay : 

Britain a Thousand Years Hence. 

" Where now is Britain ? Where her 
laurelled names, 
Her palaces and halls ? Dashed to the 


O'er her marts, 
Her crowded ports, broods Silence ; and 
the cry 

Of the distant curlew, and the pensive 

Of distant billows, breaks alone the void. 
Even as the savage sits upon the stone 
That marks where stood her capitols, 

and hears 
The bittern booming in the weeds, he 


From the dismaying solitude. Her 

Sing in a language that hath perished ; 
And their wild harps, suspended o'er 

their graves, 
Sing to the desert winds a dying strain." 

This little book cannot fail to call 
attention to a singularly interesting per- 

"Discovery" of the Author 
of "The Burial of Sir 
John Moore " 

From the well-known bookseller, Mr. T. 
Thatcher, College Green, Bristol, we have 
received " The Writer of ' The Burial of 
Sir John Moore,' ' Discovered,' " by R. 
C. Newick ( is. ). " The history of literary 
imposture starts, perhaps, from Terence," 
says Mr. Newick, who, in this amusing 
little skit makes a very good bid to be 
himself included in the history of 
impostors. He pretends to have dis- 
covered that it was a Corporal Joseph 
Wolfe, who fought under Moore and 
assisted in burying him, who wrote the 
imperishable poem. 

He says Charles Wolfe was no poet, 
and gives the following as a specimen of 
his verse to prove it : 

*' England, what ! ho ! as thus the spectre 

All Lisbon's turrets to their bases shook : 
He spoke, then plunged into the river's 

And Tagus wrapped him in his billowy 

Mr. Newick cries Wolfe too often, for 
in the next paragraph he claims that his 
Joseph Wolfe also wrote the poem : 
" If I had thought thou could'st have died." 

Referring to the metre of the 
" Burial," he quotes The Athenceum as 
saying : 

" If the metrical movement of Wolfe's 
poem had only been as much his own as 
the sentiments, thoughts and emotions, 
we must, perhaps, have placed it at the 
head of all English elegies. Yet in an 

elegy the metrical music must be orighial 
if the poem is to claim transcendent 
excellence." He adds that The Athenceum 
then states that Wolfe copied his metre 
from Tom Moore's 

" Oh ! make her a grave where the sunny 
beams rest 
When they promise a glorious to-morrow. 
They'll shine o'er her sleep like a smile 
from the West, 
Prom her own loved Island of Sorrow." 

Mr. Newick proceeds : — " But there is 
a much older example of the same metre 
quoted in Hutchinson's Fugitive Poetry, 
(Chandos Classics), and dated 1630 " : 

Burial of a Pilgrim Father in America. 

" We anxiously hollowed the frozen ground, 
And heaped up the lonely furrow ; 
For the Indian lurked in the woods around, 
And we feared his whistling arrow. 

When the surf on the seabeaeh heavily 

When the breeze in the wilderness 
muttered ; 
We deemed it the coming of hostile feet, 
Or the watchword cautiously uttered." 

The third verse is not so good, but for 
an early seventeenth century poem these 
alone are worth the modest shilling 
asked for the book. The last fifty pages 
pretend to be extracts from the Memoirs 
of Sergeant Paul Swanston, published by 
B. D. Cousins, 18, Duke Street, Lincoln's 
Inn, in monthly parts, 60 or 70 years 
ago. Here, agam, these extracts are 
worth the money, and make one wish 
that the imaginary memoirs really existed, 
so admirably done are descriptions of 
incidents in Moore's retreat when, like a 
wounded tiger, he kept the French at bay. 

It is an excellent bit of literary 
fooling, well worth reading from begin- 
ning to end. 

" Books which will Interest 
all Scotsmen " 

The Edinburgh Evening Dispatch says : — 
" A book which should prove interesting 
to all the world, but most of all to Scots- 
men, is announced by Mr. T. N. Foulis, 
and is from the pen of Mr. W. S. Crockett, 
not the Mr. Crockett who has written an 
appalling series of stories and is still 
going strong, but another minister, of 
Tweedside, who joins a love for the saving 
of souls to a love of literature. The book 
is to contain an account of the originals 
of the characters of the Waverley Novels, 
and the making of it is a task which should 
entail no small research, and perhaps a 
considerable element of speculation. 
Another volume from the same publisher, 
with an equally Scottish flavour, is an 
edition with coloured illustrations of Dean 
Ramsay's immortal ' Reminiscences.' The 
artist is Mr. Henry W. Kerr. ' ' 

A great many others besides Scotsmen 
will be delighted with Mr. Foulis's 
admirable edition of the famous " Re- 
miniscences " — which upset the erroneous 
idea that Scotsmen cannot see a joke. 
The sixteen separately mounted illus- 
trations are really fine reproductions in 
colour of paintings by Mr. H. W. Kerr, 
A.R.S.A. A good Index and attractive 
binding make us again thank Mr. Foulis 
for this very desirable edition of an old 

Milton and Elzevier 

There is an interesting new note about 
Milton in M. M. Kleerkooper's letter hi 
The Athenceum of December 19th. It 
gives a copy of a letter from Sir Joseph 
Williamson (Charles II. 's principal Minis- 
ter of State) to Roger Meredith (Secretary 
to the English Embassy at The Hague), 
which begins thus : — 

" His Majesty is informed of a perni- 
cious book of that late villain Milton's 
now about to be printed at Leyden. I am 
commanded to signify to you that you 
immediately apply yourself to find out, 
by the best means you may, if there be 
any such who is the prhiter, and by 
what order he is set on work." Suspicion 
is thrown in the letter on Skinner, a 
young scholar of Cambridge. 

There can be no doubt Skinner had 
sent some manuscript to the celebrated 
prhiter and publisher, Daniel Elzevier, 
for Mr. Kleerkooper has discovered a letter 
from Daniel Elzevier to ' ' Mr. Skinner, 
marchand, at his house in Cruchet 
Frijers at London," the father of Milton's 
young friend. In this letter, written 
evidently in consequence of the search 
set on foot by Charles, he says he is 
returning Milton's manuscripts of his 
works " on Theology and his Epistles," 
and begs him to assure the English 
Minister that " of the works of Milton 
which have been in my hands never an 
iota has been printed, and that I have 
sent them back as I received them." 

But the work the King wished to 
seize, either in the MS. or in the impres- 
sion, was Milton's State Letters, published 
surreptitiously about tliis time without 
indication of printer or place. Daniel 
Elzevier 's denial of any connection with 
the publication is explicit enough, but it 
does not satisfy Mr. Kleerkooper, who 
says : — 

" Whether Elzevier did not have a 
hand in the production of the clandestine 
edition we may at least be permitted to 
doubt. At any rate, he took good care 
not to return the manuscripts before the 
book had gone forth." 

If the " famous Amsterdam publisher " 
lied, it was to save his English friend ; 
but there is no evidence to prove that he 
did, or that he had the incriminating 
manuscript of the " villain Milton." 

The New Literary Year 

A capital handbook is " The Liter ary 
Year Book," the thirteenth annual issue 
of which has just been published by 
Messrs. George Routledge & Sons. In 
the autumn a French publisher, who was 
over here for the Franco-British Exhibi- 
tion, called on us to get some information, 
and under promise to return it in a day 
or two, he walked off with our copy of the 
1908 Literary Year Book. We should not 
like to say how many times since we have 
searched in vain for the work, until 
remembering our French visitor. We 
find it indispensable, and it is a mine of 
most valuable information for all con- 
nected with the writing and publishing 
of books. Each year sees the addition of 
some new feature.

"George Borrow, the Man 
and his Work " 

(Cassell & Co., Ltd.) 

" George Borrow, The Man and his 
Work," by R. A. J. Walling, with 
portrait and facsimiles of Borrow's MS. 
Mr. Walling, who dates his Preface from 
Plymouth, tells us that " An inquiry into 
the Cornish origin of the Borrow family, 
into the circumstances of Borrow's visit 
to the home of his forebears, and of his 
tour in Cornwall, was responsible for the 
inception of the present book." We are 
glad that anything led to the inception 
of the work, for it is ati admirable bit of 
biography — interesting from the first page 
to the last. " The Bible in Spain," the 
work which made Borrow famous, is 
described by himself in a letter to Richard 
Ford as "a rum, very rum, mixture of 
gipsyism, Judaism, and Missionary ad- 
venture," and he adds " I have no doubt 
it will be greedily read." Borrow himself 
was a rum. very rum mixture — a born 
pugilist, a lover of horses and all animals, 
a gipsy by predilection, a Missionary by 
accident, a wanderer, linguist, delightful 
writer, a good hater, a good lover : a 
wild son of Nature reflecting all her moods 
ha his disposition — " wild and fierce when 
Nature was wild and fierce, gentle and 
sunny amid fair meads in fine weather." 
When living at Oulton he tells us that he 
spent most of his time riding his favourite 
Arab horse, Sidi Habismilk " over heaths 
and through the green lanes," or staying 
at home and fishing for big pike. That 
much of Borrow's success was due to the 
encouragement of his publisher, John 
Murray, " Glorious John " as he calls 
him, is certain. In spite of occasional 
difficulties he held Mr. Murray in unfailing 
honour, and was proud to have his work 
sealed with the cachet of Albemarle 
Street. The charm of Mr. Walling's 
book is that it gives such an insight into 
the character of an extraordinary and, 
in many ways, fascinating, man. His 
thirty years of married life is one of the 
romances of literature. At his wife's death 
his grief was terrible. " He had lost her 
who had been in literal fact his better 
half, who had inspired his courage and 
fought his ' Horrors ' for him, had organ- 
ised his business, and been his wife and 
friend, counsellor mid physician, aman- 
uensis and private secretary."

For the Friend of British 

Miss Agnes E. Weston, founder and 
manager of the Royal .Sailors' Rest, 
Portsmouth, has received the following 
gracious letter from His Majesty the 
King :— 

" Sandringham, 

" December 23rd, 1908. 
" Dear Madam, — I write by com- 
mand of the King to send you His 
Majesty's best thanks for your letter, 
and for the report and copy of your 
book which accompanied it. 

" The King further commands me to 
say that nobody is better aware of, or 
more thoroughly appreciates, the great 
work you have done for the British 
sailors, and for their wives and children 
also, than His Majesty is, and he thanks 
you sincerely for the same. 

" I am, by the King's command, 
sending you a signed photograph of 
His Majesty, which he wishes you to 

accept as a small token of his gratitude 
to you for your noble services. I am 
to add at the same time His Majesty's 
fervent hope that you may yet be long 
spared to your country to carry out the 
great work to which you have given so 
many years of your life. — I remain, 
dear madam, yours faithfully, 

" D. M. Probyn (General), 

" Keeper of His Majesty's 
Privy Purse." 

Lecture by a Well -known 

IT will interest the booksellers of the 
North of England to know that the 
Geographical Society of Manchester has 
asked Mr, Harold E. Young, of Messrs. 
Henry Young & Sons, of Liverpool, to 
lecture for its members on January 12th 
next. The subject of the lecture will be 
" A Wayfarer in Rural Japan." Mr. 
Yoimg walked through Japan just after 
the great war. The lecture will be 
illustrated with original lantern slides, 

and will show an aspect of Japanese life 
which has probably not been noticed 
before in England. The Geographical 
Society has also requested Mr. Young to 
lecture again at a later date in the year on 
" Rambles and Scrambles on the Pacific- 
Slope, and in the Yellow-Stone Regions 
of the Far West." The fees which Mr. 
Young will receive will be handed over 
to a charity. As Mr. Young is the 
President of the Northern Branch of the 
Associated Booksellers of Great Britain 
and Ireland this year we feel sure many 
of our friends in the North will be glad 
to hear the lecture ; and those in the 
South also if Mr. Young will favour us 
some day. 

Britain's Position in 

Writing in Travel and Exploration, the 
new illustrated monthly magazine devoted 
to travel in all its aspects, Mr. H. Massac 
Buist seeks to answer the question why 
Britain, except in books of adventure for 
boys, has lagged in aeroplane achieve- 
ments. So far, he points out, nobody has 
made in this country a free dynamic 
flight with a voluntary conclusion. The 
reason for this, he contends, is not that 
we lack the enterprise, but the conditions 
are vastly more difficult in this country 
than they are on the Continent. Where 
the brothers Wright conducted their 
experiments for months together they 
could rely on a steady thirty-mile-an-hour 
wind from off the sea. That enormously 
simplified the problem of maintaining 
equilibrium. If you went across to 
France to see Mr. Wilbur Wright practise, 
despite fruitful years of experience and 
the perfecting of his apparatus, you found 
him greatly dependent on the changing 
weather, an added complication being the 
problem of the motor. We must not be 
over impatient in this country. Progress 
is being made extraordinarily quickly, as 
achievements here within the next twelve 
months will duly inform the public. 

Boswell's Description of the 
Form in which he was 
to Produce the " Life 
of Johnson " * 

Writing from his house in Queen Ann 
Street, W. , to his friend Temple on 
February 8th, 1790, Boswell says : — 

" It is better that I am still here, fo, 
I am within a short walk of Mr. Maloner 
who revises my ' Life of Johnson ' with 
me. We have not yet gone over quite 
half of it, but it is at last fairly in the

what is called an English letter, which 
would have made it look better ; but, 
upon calculation, it would have made 
two quarto volumes, and two quarto 
volumes for one Life would have been 
exorbitant, though in truth it is a view 
of much of the literature and many of

The Land of Opportunity 

Thousands of sturdy British emigrants go 
to the Dominion annually and settle there. 
To-day there is a large population in Canada 
interested in British books and periodicals 
and affording a splendid market for British 

The only feasible way to preserve the 
interest of these people, in face of the com- 
petition of American publishers, is to have 
Canadian booksellers and newsagents show 
British books and periodicals on their counters 
and in their windows constantly and press the 
sale of them. 

The best method of urging Canadian 
booksellers and newsagents to stock and sell 
British publications is to make use of the 
trade organ to which they subscribe regularly. 

Information as to the Canadian Market will be gladly supplied by

Our Copyright 
Arrangement with the 
United States 

Mr. T. T. Hodgson, in the interests of 
the printing trade of this country, has 
again written to The Times suggesting 
that, as the Americans give us copyright 
only on condition that the work is set up 
and printed hi the United States, we 
should insert hi our own copyright law a 
provision by which to get copyright here 
original works in English must be set up 
and printed here. 

This is all right from the printer's 
point of view, but its probable effect 
would be the abrogation by the Americans 
of the half-hearted kind of copyright our 
authors now enjoy, because it would 
mean that no American could get copy- 
right here unless his work was set up and 
printed here. There is a strong move- 
ment in America in favour of the abolition 
of the manufacturing clause, and we feel 
convinced that in the interests of all 
holders of copyright in this country — i.e., 
authors ami publishers, it would be un- 
wise to adopt retaliatory measures to- 
wards the United States. It is probable 
that America will before long join the 
other cliief nations in supporting the 
Berne Convention.

[We do not hold ourselves responsible for the 
opinions expressed by our Correspondents.'] 


Dear Sir, — With reference to Mr. Arnould 
Galopin's letter of December 15th, I can 
only repeat that he is not the author 
of " The King Who Never Reigned," 
and his own statements substantiate my 

In order to demonstrate that he is not 
suffering from any attempt on my part 
to conceal his association with the book 
in question, I append copies of the title- 
pages of the French work and the 
English one : —

quan's " New Light Upon the Fate of 
Louis XYII." 

January 2, 1909 

The Publishers' Circular 


It can thus be seen that so far from 
M. Galopin being, as he declares, the author 
of the work, he has merely supplied an 
introduction and notes in conjunction 
with M. Maurice Yitrac. In his adver- 
tisement in the Christmas Publishers' 
Circular he makes no mention of 
Eckard and Naundorff, and he also sup- 
presses the name of his collaborator, 
although it appears first on the title-page 
of the book. 

When I decided to bring out a com- 
plete work on the mystery of Louis XVII. 
I arranged to reprint the famous Memoirs 
of Eckard and Naundorff, but hi view of 
the fact that they were published many 
years ago I considered it would improve 
the value of the work if I included M. 
Joseph Turquan's " New Light on the 
Fate of Louis XVII.," as it was the latest 
important work on the subject, and I was 
fortimate in securing the British rights. 
As the volume contained three separate I 
books, with different titles, I gave it — for 
business reasons — the general title, " The 
King Who Never Reigned," and I added 
a sub-title, which fully explained the 
nature of the contents. 

In his advertisement in The Pub- 
lishers' Circular M. Galopin used my 
general title only, and disregarded the 
sub-title, an action which requires some 
explanation. It was quite unnecessary 
for me to consult him on the question of 
the title, as all my dealings were with the 
French publisher, to whom I paid a sum 
for the right to reprint, in whatever 
manner I chose, his edition of the Memoirs 
of Eckard and Naundorff, with any 
copyright notes or matter. — Yours faith-

Dear Sir, — I have published to-day the 
second volume of the " Books of the 
Chinch " series, by Dr. Clement B. 
Gunn. This volume, which follows the 
" Book of Stobo Church," is entitled 
" The Book of Peebles Church," and 
deals with the mediaeval period depicting 
life hi a country town during the Romish 
phase of the Church of Scotland from the 
beginning to its close. 

The book is well illustrated, and has 
as frontispiece the rare charter in the 
vernacular of 1434, engraved from the 
original hi possession of Sir T. D. Gibson- 
Carmiehael. The edition is limited to 
200 copies at 10s. 6d. each. 

I trust you will notice the publication, 
as you kindly did the first volume, in The 
Publishers' Circular. Thanking you 
in anticipation. — I am, yours faithfully, 

John A. Anderson.

Notices of Books 

Prom Messrs. Allman & Son. — " The Voice 
and Its Control," by Churchill Sibley. 
This little book is intended primarily for 
the singer and public speaker, but those 
who have noticed how comparatively rare 
is a melodious voice may be forgiven for 
expressing the hope that the general 
public will not entirely ignore it. Let the 
clergy especially note the remarks upon 
page 84. In less than a hundred pages the 
author gives the A B C of the physiology 
of the vocal organs, breathing, tone, 
resonance, registers, enunciation and the 
general care of the voice. A thoroughly 
practical and sensible little handbook. 

From Messrs. Blackie & Son, Ltd.— "Christ - 
abel," by Mrs. Albert G. Latham, is a 
story of the freaks and fancies of three 
little folk. Their adventures, charmingly 
illustrated by Paul Hardy, will give 
pleasure to many young children, besides 
those for whom the tale was written. 

From The Cambridge University Press. — 

" The Sermons of Henry Smith," a 
selection edited by Dr. John Brown. 
Henry Smith was a Puritan divine of the 
time of Queen Elizabeth. He was com- 
monly known as the " silver-tongued 
preacher," and Fuller tells us that his 
church was always crowded with auditors, 
whose " ears did so attend to his lips, 
their hearts to their ears, that he held the 
rudder of their affections in his hands, so 
that he could steer them whither be was 
pleased." Nor did his reputation quickly 
fade ; for within forty years of his death 
no less than seventeen editions of bis 
sermons were published. The Cambridge 
Press have done well to re-issue a selection 
from them, in a bandy little pocket volume, 
for both in matter and manner these 
discourses contain much that is by no 
means out of date. 

From The Catholic Truth Society. — " The 

Greek Fathers," by Adrian Fortescue, 
consists of carefully written biographies 
of those seven great leaders of the Eastern 
Church between 300 and 800 a.d. whose 
writings have come down to us. Mr. Fortes- 
cue has gone back to the original authorities 
for his facts and his work is a model of 
condensation and completeness. It is 
published under the official imprimatur of 
the Roman Church, and is written, there- 
fore, from the Roman point of view. 
Allowing for this, the work is commendably 
free from unfairness and narrowness, and 
may not improbably become a standard 
handbook on its subject. 

From the Same. — " Our Faith," by Cecil 
Lylburn. This little book explains in 
clear, straightforward language the Catholic 
doctrines of the Church, Infallibility, Man 
and Transubstantiation, Confession, Eternal 
Punishment, the Communion of Saints, 
&c. Nobody who studies this explanation 
with care can fail to understand the reasons 
given for teaching and believing these 
doctrines of the Church of Rome. The 
references to Scripture are very telling. 

From Messrs. T. & T. Clark.—" The Greek 
and Eastern Churches," by the Rev. 
W. F. Adeny, D.D. Dr. Adeuey is well- 
known as the Principal of Lancashire 
College, Manchester, and a theologian of 
distinction. His present work is an 
important contribution to Church History. 
The book is divided into two parts, in the 
first of which is traced the history of the 
main body of the Church throughout the 
Eastern provinces of Christendom, until 
by losing one limb after another it became 
more and more limited in area, though 
still claiming to be the one orthodox 
Church. In the second part is sketched 

the history of each of the separated 
Churches, Russian, Syrian, Coptic, &c, 
as well as of the modern Greek Church. 
Dr. Adeney writes with thoroughness, 
learning, and impartiality, not failing 
to do justice to the merits as well as 
pointing out the defects of the various 
bodies of Christians, " who in their own 
day mutually anathematised each other." 
At the head of each chapter is placed a list 
of original authorities, and there is a 
sufficient though not copious index. 

From Messrs. A. Constable & Co., Ltd. — 

"The Arabian Nights" with about 130 
illustrations by W. Heath Robinson, Helen 
Stratton, and others. Nothing need be 
said about the " Arabian Nights," the 
tales are too well-known, but the illustra- 
tions in this edition are decidedly clever 
and greatly add to the value of the book. 
There is a pretty illuminated frontispiece 
and title-page, and the book is bound i 
cloth with coloured design. 

From the Same. — " First and Last Things," 
by H. G. Wells. The impression of 
thinking aloud is very strong in this 
" Confession of Faith and Rule of Life." 
Mr. Wells wants to tell us what he thinks 
on many subjects — on Religion, on War, 
on Love — and he accomplishes his end by- 
describing the processes of thought which 
lead him to certain conclusions. The 
charm of the book lies in its simple, almost 
naive diction, and its strength is derived 
from its obvious honesty and sincerity. 
It exposes many fallacies, and stands as an 
example of clear thinking and right feeling. 

From the Same. — " Patricia Baring," by 
Winifred James. Patricia begins to keep 
a diary at the age of nine, and for the first 
few months it is full of the mingled humour 
and pathos that is so characteristic of highly 
intelligent and self-analytical children. 
Patricia is honest, unconventional, full of 
life, and passionately sincere and generous ; 
consequently, she comes into conflict with 
people and conventions, and as she is 
sensitive and highly-strung she is made 
to suffer keenly. Ten or a dozen years 
of her life are passed in review before 
the reader's gaze, and her feelings and 
aspirations are described with no little 
vigour and depth of understanding. As 
a revelation of the nature of a young child 
blossoming into girlhood and womanhood 
the book has unusual merit. 

From The De La More Press we have received 
three more of their neat booklets in a con- 
venient case: "The Dream of Gerontics." 
by Cardinal Newman ; " The Blessed Damo- 
zel," by D. G. Rossetti ; and Coleridge's 
" Christabel," they make a charming trinity 
in unity. The same firm also send a pocket 
reprint of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam 
(FitzGerald's first translation) in paper 
covers, with outline illustrations hi red 
and green by Miss Blanche McManus. 

From the Same comes also a small 
volume in vellum wrapper: "The 
Young Gardener's Year," by Miss Dollie 
Radford. It contains a short poem for 
each month of the year, giving in pleasant 
verse simple information as to the flowers 
in season and the cultural duties of the 
month, with illustrations by L. E. Wright. 
It would make a pretty little gift book for 
a garden-loving child. 

From Messrs. J. M. Dent & Co — "The 
Lawrences of the Punjab," by Frederick 
P. Gibbon, author of " The Record of the 
Sikhs" "The Gurkha Scouts," &c. We 
have every praise for this balanced and 
well-written account of the persons and 
work of the Lawrences. It is needless to 
recapitulate what is so well-known, but 
we are convinced that this book will be 
widely read, especially as it is included in 
the excellent " Temple " Biographies. We

make the suggestion that it would prove 
a capital and interesting holiday task in 
our public schools. 

From Mr. T. N. Foulis.— " Rab and His 

Friends," by John Brown, M.D. A new 
edition of an ever-popular work, remark- 
able not only for the exquisite illustrations, 
which are from water-colour drawings by j 
Miss Preston Macgoun, but from the fact 
that the story of Rab's earlier days, taken 
from the essay " Our Dogs " in Horce 
Subsecivte, is included in the book. None 
will regret to see this earlier narrative, 
which forms a natural introduction to the 
latef one, set beside it. The type and 
general get-up of the little volume call for 
a word of praise. 

From the Same. — " The Immortal Hour : j 
a Drama in Two Acts," by Fiona Macleod. , 
A drama in blank verse founded upon the | 
ancient Celtic legend of Medir and Etain — 1 
a Gaelic Orpheus and Eurydice. In Etain, 
the author would convey " a symbol of 
the wayward but home-wandering soul, 
and in Medir a symbol of the Spirit." The 
blank verse is of good quality, and some 
of the Chants interspersed rise to a high 
level of wild melody. 

From Messrs. W.lliam Green & Sons. — 

" Encyclopaedia of Agriculture," Vol. 3. j 
The third and last volume of this most 
comprehensive Encyclopaedia embraces 
articles from Kainit to Zalkova. We have 
on previous occasions spoken of this work 
in high terms of praise, and the concluding 
volume is in no sense inferior to its pre- j 
decessors ; the mimerous illustrations are j 
very well reproduced, and will be found of 
the greatest service. Among the most 
important articles we note the following : — ■ 
" Parasites," by Professor Penberthy ; 
" Pigs," hy Professor Maiden ; " Sanita- 
tion," by Richard Henderson ; " Landlord 
and Tenant," by Max A. Robertson ; 
" Physiology of Animals," by Dr. Noel 

From Messrs. Greening & Co., Ltd. — 

" Patcola : A Tale of a Dead City," by j 
Ena Fitzgerald. Miss Fitzgerald has 
chosen a difficult theme for her first novel. 
The city of Vijayanagar was founded in J 
the first half of the fourteenth century, 
when the Mohammedans were attempting 
to. conquer India. Of all its monarchs 
Krishna Deva Raya was perhaps the most 
remarkable, and the author has been wise 
in fixing upon the days of his rule as the 
time of her story. The tale was told to a 
young Englishman three hundred years 
ago by an ancient hermit in India. It has 
plenty of Eastern colour and glamour, 
and the incident is abundant. 

From the Same. — " The Hoverers," by 
Lucas Cleeve. The Hoverers are the idle 
ones, those who have little or no aim in 
life and are disappointed with their past. 
Lucas Cleeve's book is full of them, and 
two at least are anxious " to get out of it." 
The story is well told, and the character ; 
drawing is excellent. 

From TheGresham Publishing Co. — " Science : 
in Modern Life," prepared under the editor- 
ship of Professor J. R. Ainsworth Davis, 
M.A. The work sums up in an accurate and 
readable fashion the present state of know- 
ledge in Astronomy, Geology, Chemistry, 
Physics, Botany, Zoology, Biology, Physio- 
logy, Medicine and Surgery, Anthropology, 
and Ethnology. Briefly, the object of 
" Science in Modern Life " is to give a 
connected account of present-day science, 
with special reference to its influence on 
modern life. Illuminating articles are 
included on — The Nature and Cause of Sun 
Spots ; Origin of the Solar System ; Origin 
of Mountains ; The Ice Age ; The Nature j 
of Volcanoes and Earthquakes ; The 
Nature of Matter ; The Rdntgen Rays and

From Mr. William Heinemann. — " Dan to 

Beersheba," by Archibald Colquhoun. 
A book of travel and exploration, and there 
are many such, is somewhat a dangerous 
experiment : for nothing is more calculated 
to tire a reader than ill-told adventures ; 
but in Mr. Colquhoun's book the reader 
will find nothing to bore him, for the 
author, partly due to lis journalistic past, 
and partly to his energetic mind, knows 
how to sustain interest throughout. He 
takes as his motto Sterne's remark : 
" I pity the man who can travel from 
Dan to Beersheba and cry ' 'tis all barren ' ; 
and so it is, and so is all the world to him 
who Will not cultivate the fruits it offers." 
Certainly Sterne would have found no 
reason to pity Mr. Colquhoun ; and after 
reading his book one feels a little less 
ignorant, and a little more travelled. 

From Messrs. Hodder & Stoughton. A 

Short Historv of Social Life in England," 
by M. B. Synge, F.R.Hist.S. It is with 
good heart that we draw attention to this 
work, for we know that there are few- 
things better for the modern man than a 
knowledge of his ancestors and the circum- 
stances of their lives. It is so easy to 
forget the debt we owe to the past, so 
hard to remember our duty to the future ; 
and we think that this book, dealing as it 
does with the more material side of life, 
will do something to awaken the national 
conscience. It is a great thing to remember 
that the personages of our history, the 
makers of the character of the Empire, 
were after all but men — and in some cases 
women. The position of women in the 
Fifteenth Century is interesting. We read 
that " The Trades Gilds also admitted 
women as sisters, with equal rights with 
the men ; they could wear the livery, take 
apprentices, and sit at the election feasts : 
they belonged to the Drapers' Company, 
The Brewers' Company, The Fishmongers, 
Weavers, Grocers, and Stationers. Neither 
do they seem to have abused this right 
in the Middle Ages. For any fraud they 
took their place with the men in the stocks ; 
for any insubordination they were appar- 
ently still beaten by their husbands." We 
commend the position of these women to 
the earnest consideration of the militant 
suffrage-sisters of to-day with the remark 
that they will be well-advised to get 
husbands — if they can — and take their 
beatings like their nobler and more 
womanly ancestresses. In some ways 
we compare unfavourably with the past. 

From Messrs. Jordan & Sons, Ltd. — The 

29th Edition of the " Handbook on The 
Formation, Management and Winding- 
Up of Joint Stock Companies," by F. 
Gore-Browne, M.A.K.C., and William 
Jordan, is, the publishers inform us, not a

reprint, but a carefully revised new edition, 
added to and in some places rewritten 
to bring it into conformity with the latest 
enactments. This handbook is too well- 
known to need recommendation, but an 
interesting addition is the table on pp. 
627 and 628, giving the dates of the various 
editions and reprints. It is worth noting 
that the 28th edition was published 
oigiually in January, 1908, but has had 
to be reprinted on no fewer than four 
occasions, and now before that year is out 
an entirely new edition is needed. This 
is an eloquent tribute to the value of the 

Prom Messrs. Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner 
& Co., Ltd. — " Anne Seymour Damer," 
by Percy Noble. Anne Seymour Conway, 
or as she is better known, Anne Seymour 
Damer, has more than ordinary claims 
to live in history ; during her long and 
eventful life (1748-1828) she was the 
centre of a circle in which rank, wealth, 
fashion, and science were all gathered 
together. She was not only the friend of 
literary and artistic people, but was a 
sculptor of no mean repute, and the 
record of her life, as set forth by Mr. Noble, 
is extremely pleasant and agreeable. In 
whatever she undertook, she had an 
amount of daring and spirit quite un- 
common in ordinary women. The book 
contains numerous and well-chosen illustra- 

From the Same. — " Money and Profit- 
Sharing or, The Double Standard Money 
System." A- well-considered treatise of 
economic science that will prove of value, 
not only to the student but to the ordinary 

. man who would go a little beneath the 
surface of those matters of which we all 
talk so glibly. 

Prom Messrs. P. S. King &. Son.— " The 

" King's Revenue," by W. M. J. Williams. 
This book contains most of the facts 
pertaining to the taxes of the United 
Kingdom and the revenue which they 
yield. All the chief avenues of the 
Public Revenue have been treated 
separately under the various heads of 
Customs, Excise, and other Inland 
Revenue, while a reference will be found 
to minor taxes also. Each chapter has 
been divided into three sections, viz., 
history ; the rate at which a tax is now 
imposed ; and some statistics of the yield 
of revenue during recent years. 

Prom Mr. John Lane. — " A Poor Man's 
House." by Stephen Reynolds. The 
" poor man " was a fisherman in a South- 
Devon town, and the author from time 
to time spent a week or a month or two 
in his house. Tony had a wife and a 
number of delightful children. They 
presented Mr. Reynolds with a good deal 
of material for close observation and 
study, and the thoughts and reflections 
they suggested to his- mind are recorded 
here with some literary distinction and 
power. The story that runs through the 
book is not cast in the form of a novel ; 
these pages, indeed, were originally written 
as a journal and as letters to a friend. ' 

Prom Messrs. Longmans, Green & Co. — 

" English Church Teaching," by the 
Bishop of Durham, the Bishop of Sodor 
and Man, and Canon R. B. Girdlestone, is 
a standard manual of orthodox evangelical 
belief. It has already reached its twentieth 
thousand, and a further edition is now- 
issued in the form of a well-printed volume 
of 264 pages at the very low price of is. 

From the Same. — " Naval Warfare ; its 
Historical Development from the Age of 
the Great Geographical Discoveries to 
the Present Time," by Vice- Admiral 
Baron Curt von Maltzahn, translated ! 
from the German by John C. Miller. 

The chief interest in this little work 
lies in the fact that it embodies the 
views of a distinguished German naval 
officer, who has served in every part 
of the world, on the great subject described 
in its title. It shows how closely Mahans' 
works have been read, marked, learned, 
and inwardly digested by ' our greatest 
European naval rivals. Sonic of the 
conclusions seem fairly obvious. " Just 
as Napoleon's army in Egypt was cut off 
from the world by Nelson's victory at 
Aboukir Bay, so would the Japanese 
army in Manchuria have become prisoners 
in the grip of a Russian maritime 
supremacy if Rozhdestvensky's fleet had 
triumphed." If — yes, but even the 
Russians did not expect that " If " to 
come off. 

Prom Messrs. S. Low & Co.—" The Story 
of the Submarine," by Lieut.-Colonel and 
Brevet-Colonel Cyril Field, R. M.L.I. The 
majority of people if asked when sub- 
marine warfare originated would probably 
say within the last few years ; it is therefore 
somewhat surprising to learn from this 
most interesting book that the use of some 
device for under-water work can be traced 
back as far as B.C. 415. Many weird, and 
in most cases utterly useless, contrivances 
have been invented, so many in fact that 
it is hopeless to try and enumerate them 
here. The number of lives that have been 
sacrificed is also very great, and often the 
inventor found a grave in his own inven- 
tion. According to Appendix I. about 
225 submarines were invented from the 
earliest time to a.d. 1900, but only 81 
were actually constructed, and of these 
but a few were of any use whatever. 
Every shape, including fish, barrel, 
porpoise, cigar, lemon, and ovoid, has been 
tried, every size from a few feet to 160 or 
more, and every possible and impossible 
method of propulsion. An interesting 
statement of the number of submarines 
in the possession of the various Powers is 
given in Appendix II. Britain, it appears, 
has about 50; Prance, 56, with 12 sub- 
mersibles ; Germany, 6 ; U.S.A., 17 ; Russia, 
36; Japan about 15. In addition to 
submarines proper, the author deals with 
semi-submarines, submersibles, submarine 
working boats, divers and diving apparatus, 
torpedoes, &c, and his book (produced 
by permission of the Lords Commissioners 
of the Admiralty) is at once interesting and 
instructive. There are nearly 100 illustra- 
tions by the author, and a curious coloured 
frontispiece from a 13th century MS., 
showing Alexander the Great under water 
in a glass barrel and in imminent danger 
of being overwhelmed by an enormous

" The Forbidden Boundary," by B. L. 
Putnam Weale. Eastern tales of more 
than usual merit. Mr. Putnam Weale 
handles his material with a masterly 
hand, and his style has grip and force. 
" The Fever Bed " and " Drugs and the 
Man ' ' remind us a little of de Maupassant. 

Prom Messrs. A. R. Mowbray & Co., Ltd.— 

" North India," by Rev. C. P. Andrews, 
M.A. This tasteful volume is a very 
welcome addition to the admirable hand- 
books of English Church Expansion series. 
The author has chosen the plan of select- 
ing as far as possible the lives of typical 
men, both Indian and English, in order 
to tell his story, and an entrancing series 
of episodes it is. His opinions are expressed 
with frankness and without reservation, 
and the material is most skilfully handled 
throughout, with a view to making the 
story as human and as true as possible. 

Prom the Same. — " The Ornaments of the 
Ministers," by Rev. Percy Dearmer, M.A. ; 
" The Architectural History of the Christian 

Church," by Arthur George Hill, M.A., 
P.S.A. Messrs. Mowbray have learned 
the art of producing attractive and choice 
volumes at a moderate price ; moreover, 
the literary quality of the works they pro- 
duce is always sound. These two handy 
books belong to the Arts of the Church 
series. Each volume has been written 
by a man of expert knowledge and wide 
scholarship, which, however, never clogs 
the style or makes it heavy with dry and 
unnecessary information. The illustra- 
tions are plentiful and of first-rate quality, 
and each volume has a complete index. 

From the Same. — The following choice 
volumes are included in the English 
Churchman's Library : " Our Working 
Girls and How to Help Them," by Flora 
Lucy Freeman, is thoroughly practical 
from beginning to end. Miss Freeman 
has had many years' experience in connec- 
tion with girls' clubs, and the advice she 
has to offer is sound and straightforward. 
There are separate chapters on the starting 
of a club, religious teaching, discipline and 
order, moral teaching, &c. " The Chris- 
tian Use of the Psalter," by Rev. A. R. 
Whitham, M.A. This book is intended 
for the plain man who goes to church 
and loves the Prayer Book, but finds the 
Psalms sometimes puzzling. What has 
been attempted in these lectures is not 
to explain them in detail, but to suggest 
the broad lines of interpretation which 
seem always to have been in the minds 
of the Church in her use of the Psalter. 
" Letters to a Godson : Second .Series," 
by M. Cyril Bickersteth, M.A., has become 
something of a classic, and we welcome 
a new edition of this book as well as of 
Vernon Staley's " The Practical Religion." 

From the Same. — " The Invisible Glory " : 
Selected Sermons preached by the late 
Bishop Wilkinson, Primus of the Scottish 
Episcopal Church. Though these sermons 
were only published in May last, a new 
impression is already called for (5s.). As 
a memento of one who by common consent 
was of those who came nearest of all men 
of our time to the Divine pattern, the 
book needs no recommendation from us. 

From Mr. Eveleign Nash. — " The Man Who 

Understood Women," by Leonard Merrick. 
Mr. Merrick has a light touch and a 
fantastical humour that he uses to excellent 
purpose. This volume of short stories 
is a collection of trifles, of vignettes, show- 
ing an unusual art. Though the tales 
cover a wide variety of subject, the 
treatment is much the same in each — 
swift drawing of character, quick develop- 
ment, and piquant incident. 

From the Same. — " The Wife of Lafayette," 
by M. MacDermot Crawford. No woman 
of the Revolution possessed a more 
interesting personality than Adrienne de 
Noailles, and yet, strange to say, her person- 
ality is nowadays little more than a name. 
She was one of the few whose unsullied 
reputation received new lustre from the 
misfortunes of the Revolution, and no 
one could be less typical of the grande 
dame of the end of the eighteenth century 
than Mme. de Lafayette. She had none 
of the vices and weaknesses of the period, 
but she had all its virtues ; she was a 
model of heroism, an unflinchingly loyal 
wife, and a woman of large and noble 
character. Mrs. Crawford has taken great 
pains with her biography, and it is a 
fascinating piece of work. The life of 
Adrienne de Noailles is set forth in detail, 
with the times, fitful and exciting, in which 
she lived ; the result is a picture of singular 
nobility and attraction. The handsome 
volume is provided with a number of 
excellent illustrations.

Publishers' Circular 

From Mr. Grant Richards. — " The Children 
of the Gutter," bv Arthur Applin, author 
of "The Butcher of Bruton Street." It 
is a little difficult to be interested in the 
hero of this story, or to accept his course 
of action as reasonable ; he is an artist 
and sees a fifteen-year-old gutter girl 
dancing in the gutter ; he takes her to his 
lodgings, and after helping her in various 
ways into falling in love with him, he goes 
to prison, and leaves her to develop into 
a glorious red-haired dancer, the beauty of 
London and rage of the town. He 
chooses a girl with money, and we are 
left to imagine that the wild child of 
Nature breaks her heart, to a certain 
extent, and then leaves for the music halls 
of Paris. So she probably dances at last 
into much worse degradation than that 
from which the hero rescued her. The 
book is well written and interesting, 
Maggie, the heroine, being admirably 
drawn ; to make the reader regret that her 
love is wrecked, and the natural gold of 
her fiery nature hidden under music-hall 
brass, is proof of the author's skill. 

From the Same. — " When the Tide Turns," 
by Filson Young. This story of the 
development of an artist, Rupert Savage, 
is undoubtedly good, and in many of its 
incidents true to life ; it is a pity, therefore, 
that its ending, even if artistically possible, 
should be such as to outrage the feelings 
of those who feel that even an artist may 
sometimes respect his neighbour's wife. 
The author has deliberately avoided an 
artistic ending, because he preferred to 
exalt what his hero describes as " sinful 
happiness," and in doing so is both untrue 
to his art and spoils an otherwise good 

From Messrs. Sands & Co, — " Auriel 
Selwode," by Emily Bowles. A long, 
leisurely and very able story of rural 
England in the early eighteenth century. 
A good deal of interest centres in the 
haunted old rectory in which Auriel lives 
with her bachelor uncle. Miss Bowles 
has filled her tale with well-contrasted 
characters, who have real and distinct 
individualities ; there is plenty of exciting 
incident, and a happy, quiet ending. 

From Messrs. Sisley's Ltd. — " The Wine of 
the Puritans," by Van Wyck Brooks. A 
Study of Present-Day America. There 
seems to be some dislike still in our country 
to some things American ; perhaps, because 
to quote the present book, " American 
history is so unlovable." But, despite 
their unromantic past and their apparently 
soul-crushing methods, Americans in 
America are really charming people. 
Anyone who reads this study will be 
struck with its cultured style and its very 
good sense. Some of our criticisms of 
Americans, as we see them, seem to be 
true ; we notice that it is remarked that 
" there is less happiness in America 
than in any other country in the civilised 
world. And it is because we associate 
happiness with spending money." Well, 
Americans may not be internally happy, 
but they have a gift of cheering up the 
miserable, and, as we know from experi- 
ence, they are bountifully kind to the 
stranger within their gates, All the good 
fish stories come from America. 

From Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co.—" The 
Man of the Mask," by Arthur Stapylton 
Barnes, M.A. Monsignor Barnes has - 
written the story of " The Man in the 
Iron Mask " from a standpoint completely 
novel. Mr. Andrew Lang was content 
to leave the mystery unsolved. Monsignor 
Barnes, starting where Mr. Lang left off, 
has made independent research among 
the historical records, and propounds as his 
solution a personality hitherto ignored 
in this regard. The son of an English 

King, a member of the Society of Jesus, 
an Agent of the French Government, and 
a " tipster " on Newmarket Heath, the 
new man fits, it is claimed, into all the 
conditions of time and migration. A good 
deal of new matter is introduced into the 
work, and the author has made out an 
excellent case. 

From the Same. — ' ' My First and Last 
Appearance," and other original recita- 
tions, by Edward F. Turner. We are 
glad to welcome these selections from 
" T Leaves " " Tantler's Sister, and 
other untruthful stories," and " More 
T Leaves." They contain many a hearty 
laugh, and should prove a boon to the 
talented amateur in his domestic circle. 

From the Same. — "The Human Woman," 
by Lady Grove. Lady Grove has here 
reprinted a number of essays, contributed 
by her to the Nineteenth Century, Fort- 
nightly, and other reviews, on the burning 
question of Women's Suffrage. She wields 
a vigorous and incisive pen, and her 
slashing polemic will entertain even where 
it fails to convince. _ 

From Mr. 1 ^ Elliot Stock.—" A Royalist 
Raid, and other Poems," by Mr. Walter 
Clifford Meller. A series of short and 
stirring poems on the leading personages 
and events of the Stuart period. Mr. 
Meller has strong Jacobite sympathies, 
and his well written ballads will awaken 
an echo in many hearts to whom lost 

causes are dear. " The Shadow of the 

Angel," by Mr. Ernest W. Shurtleff. 
This is the first London edition of a little 
volume of heroic couplets of which five 
editions have already been published in 
America. Its theme is the consoling 
influence of angelic messengers in the 
Bible and in human life. Some photo- 
graphic reproductions of famous paintings 
help to make a very attractive little gift 

From Mr. Arthur H. Stockwell. — " A 

Shuttlecock for Critics, being the Up- 
roarings in Prose of a Dilettante's 
Pegasus," by James J. Eaton, with a 
frontispiece by Edgar H. Hawley. This 
is a pleasant handy little pocket volume 
of gossipy essays : Of Books and Reading ; 
Two Favourite Authors (Sir Thomas 
Browne and Robert Louis Stevenson) ; 
Ways of Travel ; Philosophers ; Para- 
pluitics ; Ars Vivendi, &c. Mr. Eaton 
makes friends of his readers in his first 
essay — at least of those who are lovers of 
books ; he holds that there is no other 
pleasure in life in any way comparable to 
the delight of reading. Many have shared 
his regret that life is not long enough for 
reading all that one would wish to read. 
Of R. L. Stevenson's style he says : "It 
is the perfect product of his instinctive 
appreciation of the melody of language 
joined to his complete comprehension of 
the balance and construction of the period 
in prose. Though its acquirement was 
the result of many years' work in his 
youth it is never laboured — a flawless 
and most musical flow of language, in 
which every word bears its utmost signifi- 
cance, and where none could be displaced 
or omitted, distinguishes even the most 
trivial of his writings. He aimed at per- 
fection in style ; he attained it more nearly 
than any English writer before or since." 

From Mr. T. Fisher Unwin. — " Through 
Sorrow's Gate," by Mr. Halliwell Sut- 
cliffe. Mr. Unwiu has chosen this well- 
known and successful story for re-issue, 
as the first of his " Adelphi " library, 
a new series of " novels which have gained 
the rank of standard books." The paper, 
typography, and binding are all thoroughly 
good, and the price very moderate.

Keep in Touch with the Trade 

By Advertising in "The Publishers' Circular" 

"The Publishers* Circular" is read by booksellers, librarians, and 
all connected with boohs and literature at home and abroad. It possesses 
certain features which mahe it indispensable, and there is hardly a 
bookseller in the country who does not read and study every number. 

The up=to=date Trade information ; the List of Books Wanted : and 
the detailed particulars of New Publications are some of the weekly 
features which ensure its being bought and read by booksellers, 
librarians, and large bookbuyers generally. 

" The Publishers' Circular " is therefore an excellent medium for 
Publishers' Announcements. An advertisement in its pages is the most 
effective and economical means of reaching the men whose business 
it is to buy books, and who respond to book advertising more than 
any other class. 

Booksellers having rare or second-hand books for disposal should 
try the effect of an advertisement in "The Publishers' Circular." We 
are every day receiving fresh testimony as to the efficacy of our 
advertising columns in this respect.

Account of the 
Voyage Corporatif des 
Co mm is- Libra, res 
Francais a Londres 
12, 13 & 14 Juillet. 1908 

All the booksellers and publishers who 
took part in the reception of our French 
confreres last summer, and our readers 
generally, will read with interest the 
following extracts from a charming 
illustrated brochure published by the 
French Association, describing the visit. 

Lorsque, il y a pres d'un an, plusieurs 
d'entre nous parlerent d'une excursion 
possible a Londres, mil ne pouvait prevoir 
le succes qui a couronne nos efforts. 

Nous etions en effet 160 voyageurs 
environ, en grand e majorite commis- 
libraixes et leurs families, venus surtout 

de Paris, mais aussi de Bayonne, Cler- 
mont-Ferrand, Geneve, Lille, Melun, 
Nevers. Nogent-le-Rotrou, Pithiviers, 
Toulon, etc. Nous representions, en im 
mot, toutes les provinces francaises, 
voire meme un peu la Suisse. 

vSi nous conservons un inoubliable 
souvenir de l'excursion, malgre la pluie 
et les petits ennuis inevitables, disons de 
suite qu'il faut en reporter tout rhomieur 
a nos aimables collegues anglais. Leur 
inlassable complaisance a ete pour nous 
muniment precieuse, faeilitant la tache 
laborieuse et parfois ingrate des membres 
du Comite, qui ont eu a surmonter de 
nombreuses difficultes pour la bonne 
organisation du voyage, avant et pendant 

Maintenant. reportons-nous au 1 1 
juillet, 1908, et deerivons, autant que 
notre memoire le permettra, les evene- 
ments du voyage. 

Nous sommes done reunis le samedi 
soir 11, vers 9 heures, gare du Nord ; 
plusieurs de nos amis, que nous remer- 
cions sincerement, M. Bayle, du 
journal " La Librairie," M. Labarthe, de 
Geneve, M. de Pachtere, M. Sevin, etc., 
retenus a Paris, sont venus nous aider a 
monter dans le train, ou plutot dans les 
trains, car il y a grande affluence pour 
Londres. et notre depart ne rappelle que 
de tres loin les embarquements militaires 
regies et methodiques auxquels nous | 
etions habitues au regiment. 

Mais qu'importe ! les trains roulent, et 
nous nous retrouvons a Calais pour le 
trajet maritime, effectue pour les uns sur 
le Dover, pour les autres sur le Nord, 
deux magnifiques steamers. La mer est 
superbe, sans une vague ; nous avons a 
peine le temps de visiter les machines, les 
cabines, les salons, les fumoirs, sans 
oublier le buffet et, deja, le jour parait, 
puis bientot les falaises de Douvres sont 
en vue. Nous croisons plusieurs vapeurs, 
quelques bateaux de peche, et nous met- 
tons le pied sur la terre anglaise. Nous 
prenons place dans les wagons reserves 
pour nous et 1' Association des Institu- 
teurs, et en route pour Londres ! 

Nous longeons la mer un certain 
temps et traversons ensuite de riches 
campagnes, coupees par-ei par-la de 
charmants cottages oii, eertes, il doit 
faire bon vivre. Bientot les gares se 
succedent plus rapprochees, les rues, 
formees de petites maisons semblables, 
commencent a se montrer, puis les 
fabriques et les usines, puis enfin la 
Tamise. Nos billets sont verifies a Vic- 
toria Station et, quelques minutes apres, 
nous debarquons a Charing-Cross. 

Mais quelles sont, sur le quai, ces 
figures amies qui semblent nous chercher 
au milieu de la foule ? Ce sont nos col- 
legues anglais : Mr. Chaundry, d'Oxford ; 

Mr. Beet, Mr. Hobbs, Mr. Crockett et Mr. 
Watson, de la section de Londres de la 
National Book Trade Provident Society, 
ainsi qu'un de nos societaires, M. De- 
laire, de la Librairie Nilsson, qui sont 
venus nous souhaiter la bienvenue malgre 
The are niatinale. 

(Then follow descriptions of the sights 
of London, which were seen by means of 
" les omnibus ou autobus et le Tub." 
If our French friends " asked a police- 
man " where to get " a Tub — " even he 
must have been nonplussed.) 

Stationers' Hall 

Nous avons tous ete agreablement 
surpris par la magnifique reception qui 
nous fut faite au Stationers' Hall, la 
vielle et historique maison de la Cor- 
poration du Livre, et certes, aucun de 
ceux qui assisterent a cette soiree ne 

Disons d'abord que, sur l'initiative de 
M. Cooper, secretaire de la Book Trade 
Provident Society, un comite special 
s'etait forme pour nous recevoir, sous la 
presidence de Mr. Denny, President de la 
Book Trade Provident Society, assiste de 
MM. Barwick, Minoggio, Hodges, Shaylor, 
Crockett, Cooper. 

Des notre arrivee, l'un de nos aimables 
hotes, Mr. Barwick, qui parle francais 
aussi couramment que nous, nous intro- 
duit dans les salles de l'ancienne demeure, 
ou nous sommes recus par Mr. Denny et 
les membres du Comite de reception, puis 
par Mr. Rivington, secretaire de la 
Stationers' Company. 

La grande salle, ou des sieges sont 
disposes, renferme les vieux souvenirs de 
la Corporation, les actes officiels, les 
chartes. Les splendides pieces d'argen- 
terie sont exposees pom nous, et si tot 
installes, Mr. William Heinemann nous 
souliaite en francais la bienvenue par un 
discours fort aimable que nous repro- 
duisous ci-dessous. Mr. Heinemann est 
l'un des grands editeurs anglais, et nous 
apprecions beaucoup le tres grand hon- 
neur qu'il a bien voulu nous faire. 

(Here follows Mr. Heinemann'* speech. ) 

De vigoureux applaudissements sa- 
luent la conclusion de Mr. Heinemann, 
et Mr. Rivington, le secretaire de la 
Stationers' Company, prend la parole pour 
nous dire qu'il est heureux de nous offrir, 
au nom de la Corporation, l'hospitalite, 
et pom nous conter l'liistoire de la 
vieille Societe et de l'antique demeure 
historique ou nous sommes.

parole est maintenant a M. Rouche, le 
president de 1' Association, qui prononce 
le discours suivant.

January 9, 1909 

La fin du discours est accueillie par des 
hurrahs enrages, qui cessent seulement 
lorsque M. Wilhelm, President du Comite 
francais, prononce en anglais 1' allocution 

(Here follows the charming little 
speech, in English, of M. Wilhelm.) 

Nos amis anglais sont charmes de 
l'aimable attention du President du 
Comite francais de parler leur langue, et 
lui expriment leur sentiment par leurs 

Mr. Barwick, qui a ete l'ame de la 
reunion, repond en francais qu'il ne faut 
pas se considerer comme Francais ou 
Anglais, mais comme des freres d'uue 
grande famille, et il termine en disant 
qu'une guerre entre les deux nations 
serait mi crime ; il est applaudi aussi 
chaleureusement, et il nous invite a 
passer dans une salle voisine, ou un 
magnifique buffet est dresse. 

Des rafraichissements, des cigares, 
etc., sont servis pendant que les conver- 
sations s'etablissent ; certains parmi nous 
parlent anglais, tout specialement Mme. 
Wilhelm dont la parfaite connaissance de 
l'anglais nous fut si precieuse ; de meme 
plusieurs de nos hotes parlent francais ; 
tout s'arrange done pour le mieux. 

Nous revenons ensuite dans la grande 
salle, et le concert commence par la 
" Marseillaise," suivie du " God save the 
Khig." Mr. P. Hodges s'etait charge du 
programme, fort bien choisi, et nous 
avons le plaisir d'entendre nos collegues 
anglais Mr. Leach, Mr. Swinford, Mr. 
Hennings, etc., dans diverses chansons 
anglaises ainsi que M. Bonneau, le sec- 
retaire de l'Amicale, dans " Le Lac," 
les uns et les autres fort applaudis par 

N'oublions pas de mentionuer aussi 
1 'aim able telegramme suivant qui nous 
est adresse en francais au Stationers' Hall 
par Mr. Pearce, secretaire de 1* Associated 
Booksellers' Society (Libraires associes) : 

" Je regrette infiniment qu'il ne me 
soit pas possible d'etre avec vous. Tous 
mes souhaits pour une visite agreable. 
Vive l'entente cordiale ! qu'elle devienne 
encore plus assuree pour le bonheur de 
nos cheres patries ! " 

Nous remercions tout particulierement 
Mr. Pearce et les membres de V Associated 
Booksellers' Society. 

Mais le temps passe vite, et bientot 
apres avoir ehante les hynmes nationaux, 
nous devons nous quitter pour rentrer a 
l'hotel, mais avec l'espoir de nous revoir. 

Le mardi, des le matin, plusieurs 
groupes se fonneut pour visiter les uns 
les grands musees ou la mervcillcuse col- 
lection Wallace, les autrcs le Jardin 
Zoologique et les quartiers avoisinants, 
pendant que d'autres se dirigent vers le 
Port et les Docks, ou vont tout simple- 
ment faire des achats en ville. 

Le President de l'Association et les 
membres du Comite profitent de leur 
liberte relative pour rendre les visites 
qu'ils ont recues et aller remercier les 
libraires et les personnes qui ont ete en 
relations directes avec nous et ont con-

aimablement et nous nous hatons pour 
nous trouver a l'heure au rendez-vous 
fixe pour la visite de la maison Cassell 
& Co. 

Visit to Messrs. Cassell & Co. 

After a long and interesting account 
of the visit to Messrs. Cassell's, M. J. 
Rameau, who describes it, says : 

En allant a Londres, l'Association des 
Commis- Libraires Francais n'avait pas 
pour but unique de faire un voyage 
d'agrement. Fidele a son programme, 
elle voulait mettre a profit ce voyage pour 
donner a ses adherents une lecon de 
choses par une idee de la production, de 
l'edition anglaise et, en meme temps, 
etablir des relations amicales avec ses 
collegues d'Outre-Manche. 

Cette lecon de choses, sollicitee par 
Mr. Lee, directeur de la succursale 
Cassell, de Paris, nous fut obtenue par 
l'entremise du tres amiable Directeur des 
services du Cercle de la Librairie. M. 

Lors de son voyage a Londres, en juin 
dernier, ce dernier fit part de notre desir 
a Mr. Edward Bell, President du Cercle 
des Editeurs anglais. Celui-ci, avec une 
grande bienveillance, voulut bien prendre 
en main notre cause et nous obtint par 
Mr. Golding, l'un des sous-directeurs, 
l'autorisation de la visite si interessante 
de la Maison Cassell & Co., l'une des plus 
importantes, sinon la plus importante 
maison d'edition a Londres, dont nous 
connaissons tous la filiale de Paris. Nous 
renouvelons ici, a chaemi de ces Mes- 
sieurs, l'assurance de notre vive gratitude 
pour la belle lecon qu'ils nous ont 

Nous avons, en France, des maisons 
d'edition considerables, mais aucune, ne 
possede semblable organisation et n e 
reunit tous les services de fabrication 
mecanique que nous venons de voir, 
depuis la fonte du caractere jusqu'a la 
mise en vente du livre. 

Avant de partir, par une delicate 
attention. Mr. Bovit fait distribuer a 
chacun de nous le numero de The World's 
It'i')/,' qui rend compte de 1' Exposition 
franco-britaunique, et e'est avec nos vifs 
remerciements que nous quittons la 
Maison Cassell & Co. En la quittant, 
nous emportons la forte impression d'une 
puissance, d'une action, d'une direction 
auxquelles nous rendons honimage et qui 
se font sentir dans le monde entier par 

des succursales etablies a Paris, New 
York, Melbourne et Toronto. 

(Then follows a long account of a visit 
to the Exhibition.) 

Good Wishes from Edinburgh 

Voici maintenant le dernier diner pris 
en commun ; il faut songer a partir. 
Avant de quitter Londres nous avons soin 
de ne pas oublier nos amis d'Ecosse et 
nous adressons a Mr. D. Haldane. 
secretaire de 1' Edinburgh Assistant Book- 
sellers' Association un telegramme de 
cordiale sympathie. M. Minoggio, de la 
maison Hachette, a l'amabilite de venir a 
l'hotel nous faire ses adieux, et non sans 
regrets, il faut nous dinger vers la gare. 

Nous y trouvons tous nos amis venus 
nous serrer la main encore une fois, et 
\ nous dire au revoir, et au revoir e'est bien 
ce qu'il convient de dire, car des liens 
d'amitie et de sympathie sont maintenant 
: etablis entre les collegues francais et les 
collegues anglais, et ces liens dureront 
toujours, comme le souvenir de l'aimable 
reception qui nous a ete faite. 

Aussi merci a vous, amis Barwick. 
Beet, Chaundy, Cooper, Crockett, Hobbs, 
Rymer, Watson, sans oublier l'aimable 
Mr. Murphy et nos collegues francais. 
MM. Kruger et Delaire, merci du fond du 
cccur a tous nos camarades anglais et a 
M. Denny, le president du Comite. merci 
a vous tous qui avez fait le possible et 
1 'impossible pour nous etre agreables. 
Soyez contents, vous avez parfaitement 

Mais les trams partent : un dernier

loin. Nous arrivons a Douvres, en pleine 
nuit, la mer est un peu agitee : cependant 
la traversee s'effectue sans incidents, par 
un superbe clair de lune. A Calais, nous 
prenons vite place dans les trains de 
Paris et a l'arrivee, nous nous quittons a 
la hate, afin de profiter des quelques 
heures fibres pour dormir mi peu avant de 

Plusieurs semaines se sont eeoulees 
depuis notre retour et cependant nous 
songeons toujours a la clialeureuse re-

immense ville. Nous conservons le

de n'avoir pu qu'entrevoir cette vie 
affairee si intense, ces musees et ces 
monuments si interessants et surtout 
1 espoir de voir un jour en France nos 
amis anglais.

January 9, 1909 The Publishers' Circular 


Notes and Announcements 

Messrs. Longmans. Green & Co. are 
preparing for publication, during the 
coining spring, five volumes in a new one 
shilling net series of Anglican Chinch 
Handbooks, edited by the Rev. W. H. 
Griffith Thomas, D.D. The object of the 
series is to present to Church people, in a 
cheap and readable form, a trustworthy 
account of the History, Faith, Worship, 
and Work of the Church of Christ in 
general, and the Church of England in 
particular. The titles of forthcoming 
volumes are : " Christianity and the 
Supernatural " ; " Social Work " ; " Pas- 
toral Work " ; " The Joy of Bible 
Study " ; and " Old Testament Theo- 

Her Majesty the Queen of Spain, as 
well as His Majesty the King of Portugal, 
ordered copies of Queen Alexandra's 
Christmas Gift Book direct from Mr. 
Thatcher, College Green, Bristol ; the 
copies were specially bound by Mr. H. 
Frowde. Oxford Press. His Majesty 
King Edward VTX accepted a copy of 
the photograph of Mr. Thatcher's shop 
window specially dressed with Queen 
Alexandra's Christmas Gift Book. 

The earliest of the serious books to 
be issued in 1909 is that on the present 
condition and progress of "The South 
African Natives," which Mr. Murray 
publishes at once. It has been prepared 
by the Native Races Committee, and 
contains a special chapter on the adminis- 
tration of natives by Sir Godfrey Lagden, 
whose inestimable services durhig the 
War are not likely to be forgotten. The 
book makes a thoughtful study of the 
questions of labour, land, education, and 
taxation, so far as they affect the South 
African natives. Its publication is singu- 
larly opportune, synchronising as it does 
with the Congress on native affairs to 
be held during January in Cape Town. 

The forthcoming number of The 
Quarterly Review, to be published on 
January 14th, will contain articles on 
several subjects of immediate public 
interest — the Territorial Force. the 
question of a Minimum Wage, Motor- 
car Legislation, Female Suffrage (by 
Professor Dicey), the Care of the Feeble- 
minded (by Dr. Savage), and the 
Turkish Revolution (by Dr. Dillon). 
History and Biography are represented 
by articles on Sir Henry Wotton (Mr. 
Pearsall Smith's "Life"), the influence 
of Religion on Politics hi Ancient Egypt 
(by Mr. Weigall, a distinguished member 
of the " Service des Antiquites in Egypt), 
the Foundation of the Third Republic 
(based on the work of M. Hanotaux, 
by Sir Ernest Satow), Herodotus (Dr. 
Macan's edition, by Mr. Grundy), and 
Irish History as treated by Mrs. Green 
and others (by Mr. R. Dunlop). Among 
literary subjects, the Poet Laureate 
contributes an article comparing Dante 
and Milton ; Mr. Escott discusses Antony 
Trollope, whose lasting popularity is 
attested by numerous recent reprints, 
and Mr. Henry Newbolt criticises Mr. 
Hardy's historical drama " The Dynasts," 
under the title " A New Departure in 
English Poetry." This being the cen- 

[ tenary year of the birth of Charles Darwin 
and of The Quarterly Review, a special 
centenary number, containing, among 
other things, a history of The Quarterly 
Review and articles on Darwinism 

j from various points of view, will, it is 

I hoped, be published in April. 

Messrs. Henry Young & Sons, an- 
' nounce that they will shortly publish 
I another work by the octogenarian 
j Liverpool author, William Lowes Rushton , 
j entitled ' ' Shakespeare and the ' Arte 
', of English Poesie,' " inwhich Mr. Rushton 
j proves by many examples Shakespeare's 

indebtedness to that famous Elizabethan 


The two pictures by the late James 
McNeill Whistler wliich are being ex- 
hibited at the^Royal Academy in the 
collection of *the late Mr. George 
McCulloch, are reproduced in the "Life" of 
the artist by Mr. and Mrs. Pennell, lately 
published by Mr. Heinemann. The two 
pictures in question are the very fine 
portrait of Whistler by himself, which 
forms the frontispiece to the second 
volume, and the upright Valparaiso 
Nocturn, which is one of some 90 illus- 
trations in the first volume. 

A book with a second-hand middle- 
aged bookseller for its hero, or say 
principal character, is a bit of a novelty, 
but this is what Mr. Teignmouth Shore's 
new story " A Soul's Awakening," just 
published by Mr. John Long, is. And 
it is a capital book, too, one which we can 
heartily recommend to our readers, the 
booksellers. Arthur Murchant, of the 
j little dark bookshop in Turnmill Lane, 
j Holborn, is a fine character, well-drawn, 
and the picture of the dawn of a great 
happiness coming into Ins humdrum life 
and its simset in sorrow is a bit of good 
and true work. 

" As yet South America is scarcely 
producing her own literature, though she 
is a great reader of fiction and other 

; lighter books. It will be interesting to 
see which of the old countries will ulti- 
mately supply most books to South 
American readers. One would say Spain, 
for the language of South America is 
Spanish, but then Spain is not exactly 
producing the books wliich South America 
wants. Next one would say France, 

! because French fiction is perhaps nearest 
the taste of the light-hearted South 
American reader. There, again, how- 
ever, our English tongue comes in to help 
us, for next to Spanish, it is best known 
in South America." — The Book Monthly. 

Antiquaries and others interested in 
j old Leases, Releases, Mortgages, Wills, 
I Probates, Titles, Conveyances, Agree- 
! ments, Contracts, Feoffments, Defeaz- 
ances, et hoc genus omne, should note that 
J Mr. James Coleman, of Tottenham Ter- 
race, White Hart Lane, Tottenham, has 
I a lot of such documents relating to 
j Middlesex for sale. He is doing good 
service hi paging his lists continuously 
; "in order to form a volume of reference 
J for the genealogist and topographer." 

Mr. William J. Locke's new novel, 
" Septimus " will bet published next 
week by Mr. Murray. The central 
character, after whom the novel is named, 
is a harmless and irresponsible inventor. 
Readers of Mr. Locke's earlier books 
will be prepared for some excellent 

" Sweet Peas and How to Grow 
Them " is the title of a well-illustrated 
volume written by Mr. H. H. Thomas, 
editor of The Gardener, which Messrs. 
Cassell publish. It gives practical advice 
on all phases of the subject, and tells how 
to grow sweet peas for home and garden, 
as well as for exhibition, how to raise 
new varieties, and has a special chapter 
entitled " The Beginner's Guide to Sweet 
Pea Growing." Whether in the garden 
or for table decoration, the sweet pea is 
one of the joys of life. 

On January 15th Messrs. Cassell will 
publish a popular shilling edition of 
Maurice Hewlett's novel, "The Spanish 

" Gardening hi the North " (Cassell) 
is the title of a volume by Mr. S. 
Arnott and Mr. R. P. Brotherston, which 
deals in a thorough and workmanlike 
manner with the subject. 

Among the best of the book reviews 
given by the illustrated papers are those 
in The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic 
News, which has been established over 
thirty-five years, and is every week more 
attractive than ever. If a prize were 
offered for getting the best results out 
of printing half-tone process blocks, the 
staff of the S. & D. would come out very 
close to the bald spot. 

Messrs. Gowans & Gray, Ltd., of 
London and Glasgow, have recently 
published at 6d. net, a wonderful httle 
edition of " Las Cien M^jores Poesias 
(Liricas) de la lengua Cistellana " (the 
Hundred Best Poems (Lyrics) in the 
vSpanish Language). It is a beautifully 
prhited httle volume of 350 pages, and 
ranges over the whole history of vSpanish 
poetry, exclusive of the work of living 

On January nth, hi the "Great 
Cities of the World " series, Mr. T. Fisher 
Unwin will publish a book by Mr. E. A. 
Reynolds- Ball, entitled " Paris in its 
Splendour." It is an attempt to give a 
general impression of Paris past and 
present, and of the more striking features 
of the social life of the city to-day. It 
presents in a readable and attractive 
form a large amount of information about 
the history, the people and the buildings 
of Paris, and has many illustrations. 

" The Industrial and Commercial 
Influence of the English Patent System " 
is dealt with by Mr. A. F. Ravenshear hi a 
volume wliich Mr. T. Fisher Unwin will 
publish on January nth. The subject 
of patents, and especially their effect 
upon British industries, has for some time 
been prominently before the public.

Mr. William Devereux's play, " Henry 
of Navarre," at the New Theatre, on 
January 7th, Messrs. Greening inform 
us that they are publishing a novel by

are also issuing a cheap edition of Miss 
Wynne's story, " A Maid of Brittany." 

Mr. M. P. Shiel's new novel " The 
Isle of Lies," which Mr. Werner Laurie 
is about to publish, tells how an enthu- 
siastic professor daringly possesses him- 
self of a " Stele " thousands of years old, 
the prized possession of an Egyptian 
convent, and being unable to decipher all 
that is engraved upon it, conceives the 
idea of bringing up a son in such fashion 
that he shall have god-like capacities and 
be able to make out the inscription. 
Consequently he marries a carefully 
selected woman, and when a son is born 
he takes him away to a remote island, 
and there by a most elaborate series of 
deceptions brings him up in the belief 
that there are no limits to the power of 
man. On his nineteenth birthday the young 
man, gifted with extraordinary powers 
and extraordinary ignorance, and having 
never seen anyone but his father, whom 
he believes omnipotent, escapes into the 
world, and makes a rare sensation. 

Mr. Werner Laurie is also shortly

Miss Florence Warden's latest novel 
is entitled " The Case of Sir Geoffrey," 
and it is now being published by Mr.

baffle the most astute reader of stories 
of crime. 

Messrs. Passmore & Alabaster, 4, 
Paternoster Buildings, London, send

Spurgeon's Book Almanack, which has

contains bright articles by C. H. Spurgeon 
and others, while the texts have been

Sheet Almanack always finds a welcome, 
with its racy proverbs and words of 
kindness for man and beast. The pub- 
lishers also send a copy of C. H. Spur- 
geon's last published Weekly Sermon, 
and although they will publish shortly the 
fifty-fourth yearly volume of the great 
preacher's discourses, they still have 
enough manuscripts to issue a fresh 
sermon for nine or ten years to come. 
They will gladly send to any reader a 
specimen copy free on receipt of full 

A very useful classified list of surplus 
books at very cheap prices is issued by 
Day's Library, Ltd., 96, Mount Street, 
Park Lane. It includes works in every 
branch of literature, some of which are 
out of print and scarce. 

Messrs. Morgan & Scott, Ltd.. find 
that much interest is being taken hi their 
finely illustrated work by Miss Geraldine 
Guiuess*: " Peru : Its .Story, People, and 
Religion." Prominent men of all shades 
of opinion have written in enthusiastic 
terms about it. 

The Price of The Times 
and its Management 

For some time past there have been 
persistent rumours that the price of 
The Times is to be reduced to a penny. 
As this is a matter which affects a great 
many of our subscribers at home and 
abroad who buy The Times for customers, 
we think that they will be glad to know- 
there is no truth whatever in the rumour. 
No change in price is contemplated. 

The quality of paper and type have 
both been recently greatly unproved, and 
further improvements involving large 
expenditure are in course of execution. 

Another equally baseless rumour is to 
the effect that Mr. C. Moberly Bell is 
resigning his position as chief manager of 
The Times, or that he contemplates such 
a step. The only things at all likely to 
sever Mr. Bell's long connection with 
The Times would be his death or such an 
illness as would make work impossible — 
and from such causes for resignation 
may he, in the one case for many years, 
and in the other for ever, be exempt. 

Edinburgh Book Notes 

By " Edina " 

Christmas, with all its looked-for possi- 
bilities, has come and gone. We leave it 
behind with a sigh, for it has no longer 
the delights for us of the good old times. 
Then it was possible to sell a few nicely 
bound sets of Dickens, Thackeray, Scott, 
George Eliot, and the other favourite 
authors ; but we must now be content 
if we have turned over a sufficient quan- 
tity of what a book lover the other day 
called " Dainty Nothingnesses. " 

This has been the distinct feature of 
the Christmas trade in Edinburgh for 
19O8. Now, I do not mean to say that 
we ought to boycott the tabloid literature 
which has become a craze, especially with 
ladies ; but could only a Gulliver be found 
whose satire would bite into the heart 
of this mannikinizing age, there would 
be hope that the Lilliputian ideas of 
serving out the brains of our greatest 
literary giants would have an end and a 
truly noble quest for the Holy Grail of 
literary endeavour be inspired. 

I am sure that all members of the 
trade whose instincts are for the highest 
and the best of literature, alike in physical 
and decorative qualities, feel that we can- 
not proceed much longer along these 
paths which have been the fashionable 
promenade of the would-be bookish 
public without meeting disaster. 

As I look over the shelves of an 
ordinary bookshop I see plainly who has 
had to pay for all the cheap reprints of 
standard writers which came as a deluge 
with the introduction of the cylinder 
press. The bookseller has paid high for 
tliis public boon : but is he to go on 
paying toll for an ungrateful public ? 
The problem is before us. and on the 
manner we meet its solution depends the 
future well-being of the retailer. 

We have to reckon with the things 
which are. but we must also guess 
shrewdly the things which are yet to be. 
At present we have a large cult which 
has, as its first rule, that its members

should be conversant with a thousand 
and one authors of repute, and these 
members have to sustain their reputation 
as lovers of literature — good literature — 
by swallowing all the pilule nostrums 
which bear the name of the favourites of 
culture — so-called. Then, to appease 
their appetite, they gobble up all the 
printed trash which issues under the 
name of fiction. As for history, it must 
now be dressed up in all the tawdryness of 
secret intrigue and social scandal. It 
then forms a favourite entree. This 
must be followed with spicy tartlets and 
icings of dainty hue to gloat our effemi- 
nate taste. But what has become of the 
roast beef and the haggis-fed sons of the 
pen ? 

They have not ceased to exist. There 
is a Carlyle trudging his way to the 
centre of literary greatness who is not 
above making his breakfast on a bowlful 
of oatmeal porridge. Look out for him ! 

I looked out from my study window 
and thought I recognised the man in the 
figure of Lauchlan Maclean Watt, as he 
hurried up the street ; but he has not 
yet been sickened by the flesh pots of 
Egyptian days. He shoots straight, he 
aims high ; but he does not follow up 
the game. He must needs go into the 
desert awhile. Then shall we see him 
come forth in his strength, clad in rough 
homespun it may be, but muscular, full 
of action, knowing men and things as 
they really are. 

" Auld Scotland wants nae skinkhig 
ware that jaugs in luggies." We want 
something tangible, something robust, 
something toothsome, something " kyte- 
riving " — and we mean to have it, too. 
Behold the hour, and you will see the 
man ! There is a Knox for every refor- 
mation, there is a Burns for every heart 
sensation, there is a Scott for every 
re-creation, there is a Burton for our 
confirmation, a Stevenson to ring sweet 
tones of jubilation. 

Few readers of Stevenson appear to 
be aware that the secret of his style 
(which was hailed as quite original) is 
common also to that contemporary of 
Sir Walter Scott, who was overshadowed 
by the greater light — John Gait. It was 
as great a surprise to me (as it was to an 
audience of American ladies, to whom 
I had to give an impromptu lecture on 
the " Beauties of Stevenson ") to make 
this discovery. I began to point out his 
intense appreciation of contrast, when 
I recalled a similar trait in the earlier 
writer ; and, referring to the works of 
Gait, at once descried that Stevenson had 
made a closer acquaintance with him 
than had been known to me. 

This leads me to observe that there 
being nothing new under the sun, we 
may be expecting too much originality 
from the man who is really the leader 
of a new literary era. Originality depends 
on the food and the manner of its diges- 
tion. This is really the secret which 
underlies literary degeneracy— we are 
suffering from Dyspepsia Literarise. 

Among the contributors to Mr. Eve- 
leigh Nash's new Monthly Magazine will

Durham Booksellers' 

MESSRS. Andrews & Co., University 
publishers and booksellers, Durham, 
celebrated their one hundredth anniver- 
sary on Tuesday, December 29th, by 
entertaining their staff to dinner. 

This old established firm was founded 
in 1808 by George Andrews the elder, 
and remained in his hands for many 
years. At his death the business was 
carried on by his son and daughter, 
George and Frances Andrews. Miss 
Frances Andrews afterwards married 
Mr. John Henry Le Keux, the famous 
steel engraver, who then removed (his 
engraving business from London to 
Durham, and became a partner for 
upwards of thirty years in the firm of 
Andrews & Co. Mr. Le Keux was a 
personal friend of Ruskin, and illustrated 
several of his works, notably " Modern 
Painters " and " Stones of Venice." He 
also taught the art of engraving to the 

Proprietor of Andrews & Co, Durham 

late Mr. George Allen, Ruskin's publisher, 
and, indeed, a few years before he died 
presented Mr. Allen with all his engraving 
tools. He was a great worker, and in 
his life-time produced many famous 
plates, among winch were the well-known 
series, " The Oxford Almanack," Architec- 
tural works by Parker & Billing, thirty- 
one plates for a large work on Trondhjem 
Cathedral for the Norwegian Govern- 
ment, and many others. He was one of 
the last of the old school of steel engravers, 
and with him has almost died out this 
beautiful art, killed by the present day 
demand for the cheaper and quicker 
methods of modern photography — a 
circumstance much to be regretted. A 
few months before liis death hi February, 
1896, the business was purchased by 
Mr. Warnford Smart, who was at that 
time manager. Since then it has grown 
considerably, necessitating the removal 
to larger and more convenient premises, 
and even still further extensions until 
at the present day it may truly be 
considered one of the finest businesses 
in the North of England. 

Messrs. Andrews & Co. are the- 
officially appointed publishers and book- 
sellers of the University Calendar and 
Examination Papers. They are also the 
publishers for the Surtees Society, and 
have at various times issued other 
notable works, among which is Billing's 
"►Antiquities of Durham " already 
referred to. 

Staff Dinner, 
Messrs. E. J. Arnold & Son, 

The firm's twenty-third annual dinner 
to the Heads of Departments and 
Travellers of this well-known school 
supply house and publishing firm was 
held at the Leeds and County Liberal 
Club on New Year's night. In the 
absence of the Chairman of the Company, 
Mr. E. J. Arnold, who was slightly in- 
disposed, the chair and vice-chair were 
taken respectively by the other two 
Directors — Mr. George Arnold and Mr. 
H. Wood. Seventy-three persons sat 
down to a first-rate repast, and after the 
loyal toast of " His Majesty the King " 
had been duly honoured, " The Company" 
was proposed by Mr. Tranter in an 
I excellent speech, full of quiet points of 
j humour, and responded to by the two 
J Directors. A most enjoyable " Smoker " 
I followed, with Mr. J. Robinson as Chair- 
man, all the items of songs and recitations 
being provided by the staff. It is im- 
possible to mention all who contributed 
to a long and excellent programme, but 
the introductory pianoforte duet by 
Messrs. Womack and Tinsdale deserves 
special mention. The humorous singing 
of " The Mesmerist," followed by " Potts" 
as an encore, of Mr. J. H. Gilmore 
(who has been in one department of 
the firm for 32 years and is now 
manager of it) literally brought down 
the house. This " old hand " was 
followed by several of the " juniors," who 
entered the firm as boys when they left 
school, and have now reached positions 
of importance. Amongst these may be 
mentioned — Bass songs by Messrs. W. 
Hornby and J. Tinsdale, and comic songs 
by Mr. E. Charlton. " The Midship- 
mite " was excellently given by Mr. C. 
Wellings, an " old hand," who has been 
with the firm above 24 years, and Mr. T. 
Stones, another " old stager," sang " The 
Irish Emigrant " with much feeling. 
Many others, who are now on the staff, 
but have not spent all their business 
career with the firm, contributed items, 
which gave much pleasure to those

In our issue of December 19th, we 
mentioned that there were less than 
70 sets of the £10 10s. edition of the 
Pentland " Stevenson " left, out of an 
edition of fifteen hundred sets. By 
December 31st, Messrs. Cassell had sold 
every set, and the price to the public-

for that much abused party A.D. 1908.

expect from John Walker & Co. but 
originality and taste ? It is worth 
mentioning too that the menu was printed 
in English, an innovation which was much 
appreciated. In short, we must con- 
gratulate all concerned on another very 
successful and enjoyable f miction, and 
we feel sure that the expressions of

Second Annual Dinner of 

the International 
Association of Antiquarian 

As already announced, the second annual 
dinner of the Association will take place 
at the Criterion on January 13th. The 
President (Mr. B. D. Maggs) will take the 
chair, and among the guests will be Dr. 
G. K. Fortescue (Keeper of the Printed 
Books, British Museum), Mr. Barwick 
(Reading Room, British Museum), and 
Mr. Herbert Bailey (Editor of The 
Cennoissem). The Chairman will pro- 
pose the toasts of " The King " and 
" The Oueen and Royal Family " (with 
musical honours), and " Our Guests." 
Mr. Myers will propose the toast of " The 
Ladies," and Mr. Tregaskis will reply on 
their behalf. Mr. Wesley will propose 
the toast of " The Trade Journals." 
Miss Kathleen Kelly (Mrs. Henry Stevens) 
will give a sketch under the title of

will follow the example of Mr. William 
Downing, of Birmingham, who is coming

specially to attend the dinner. 

in the days that yet remain to him. Mr. 
Farlow Wilson suitably responded. He 
rejoiced to know that the fortunes of the 
Yard were now in the hands of young 
men, who were bent on restoring the 
firm to its former prosperity, and he had 
no doubt they would succeed. 

The toast of " The House of Cassell " 
was proposed by Mr. Walter Smith, the 
Chief Editor, and responded to by Sir 
Clarence Smith, Chairman of the Direc- 
tors. In replying to the toast of his 
health, proposed by Mr. Thomas Young, 
manager of the Advertisement Depart- 
ment, Mr. Spurgeon said that the year 
closed hopefully for the business. Al- 
though 1908 had been a very trying year, 
the outlook was full of promise. He 
congratulated the travellers on the ex- 
cellent work they had done during the 
year and he had no doubt they would be 
still more successful in 1909. 

An Amusing Anecdote of 
Dr. Johnson 

A WEST of England subscriber kindly 
sends us the following anecdote, which 
he says is told as related by Peter Pindar 
(Dr. Walcot) in a number of The Bath 
Chronicle published in 1796. Se non e 
vero, e ben Irovato. 

" When Johnson lodged at Kettle 
Hall in the University of Oxford at a 
Mr. Thompson's, a cabinet-maker, the 
maid by an unfortunate mistake brought 
him one day a chemise of Mrs. Thomp- 
son's to put on instead of his shirt. 
Contemplating on nothing but ramblers, 
idlers and colossal dictionaries, he shoved 
his arms and head through into the 
lady's linen before he discovered his 

" ' Who has* cut off the sleeves of my 
shirt ? Who has cut off the sleeves of 
my shirt ? ' exclaimed the enraged and 
hampered moralist with stentorian voci- 
feration, dancing and tugging and foam- 
ing for freedom. 

"The roar brought up poor, trembling 
Mrs. Thompson, who, with most con- 
summate delicacy, shutting her two 
chaste eyes, slipped her hand into the 
room and delivered her giant guest from 
his enchanted castle." 

John Walker & Co.'s Annual 
Dinner at the Hotel Cecil 

" The New Year would not seem to 
have properly started, nor the Christmas 
season to have properly finished, without 
John Walker & Co.'s Annual Dinner." 
This remark, made by one of the visitors 
in his speech on Saturday last, seems to 
fittingly indicate the characteristics of 
this eagerly anticipated function. Once 
more it is our pleasure to chronicle the 
complete success of this well-known firm 
hi its social, as in its commercial, under- 
takings. Under the presidency of Mr. 
John Walker (than whom no more 
popular or genial Chairman could be 
imagined), some eighty gentlemen en- 
joyed a banquet served in the Hotel 
Cecil's best manner. After the usual 
loyal toasts had been duly honoured, the 
Chairman read many congratulatory 
telegrams from various absent friends, 
including a "Marconi wireless" from 
Mr. Whitlock (one of the Directors), who 
was en route for the United States. The 
speeches were of the usual hearty spon- 
taneous and eloquent character to which 
visitors to these banquets have been long 
accustomed. The toast of " The Firm " 
was proposed by Dr. Macdonald Brown, 
and responded to by Mr. Walker, who 
showed in his speech no trace of pessimism 
— for the slump in trade as indicated by 
the Government returns seems to have 
forgotten to pay an unwelcome visit to 
Warwick Lane. " Indeed," said Mr. 
Walker, " we have little to repine over, 
and much to be thankful for." Mr. Jolm 
Walker, Junr., gave "The Travellers," 
and caused much laughter and applause 
at the deft way in which he described the 
characteristics of each. Mr. Dixon re- 
sponded in a speech of great ability and 
humour, and was ably seconded by Mr. 
Hess. Mr. Barringer then proposed 
" The Staff," and after his usual jocular 
introduction, sincerely thanked them for 
their continued loyalty and devotion, and 
in coupling this toast with the name of 
Mr. Rowe, he alluded to the fine new 
factory recently erected in Camberwell, 
and of which Mr. Rowe is the Manager. 
The response to this was of a sincere and 
genuine nature, and brought into great 
prominence the admirable feeling in 
existence amongst all sections in Far- 
ringdon House. In the regretted absence 
of Mr. Dow, the Chairman called upon 
Mr. Barringer to propose " The Visitors," 
which he did in his usual cheery style. 
The last toast, that of "The Chairman," 
was proposed by Mr. J. W. Johnston, who 
spoke of his long business connection with 
the firm, and mentioned that on his late 
trip to the States, where he went at the 
invitation of the American Stationers' 
Society as a delegate from the London 
Stationers' Society, he heard the name 
of Mr. John Walker on every side, and the 
fact of his friendship with Mr. Walker 
was an " open sesame " to all desirable 
quarters. Mr. Walker's response was 
received with great enthusiasm. The 
proceedings were further enlivened with 
music, songs and recitations, contributed 
by Messrs. Carr Evans, Quitter, Burrows, 
Storey, Sinclair, Mantell, and others, 
whose efforts were much appreciated. 
We must not omit a word of praise to the 
very elegant and highly original menu 

Cassell & Co.'s Annual 
I raveller's Luncheon 

The Annual Travellers' Luncheon of 
Messrs. Cassell was held on December 
31st at De Keyser's Hotel, under the 
chairmanship of Mr. Arthur Spurgeon, 
the General Manager. The Chairman, in 
proposing the health of " The Father of 
the Yard," said that Mr. Farlow Wilson's 
official connection with the firm ter- 
minated with the close of the year after a 
service extending over more than half a 
century. During the greater portion of 
that period he had been manager of the 
printing department and had rendered 
true and faithful service. He retired into 
private life with the hearty goodwill of 
all his colleagues. A special resolution, 
engrossed on vellum, was recently passed 
by the Board of Directors expressing 
their appreciation of the valuable service 
Mr. Wilson had rendered to the firm 
during his long connection with it. They 
all wished him much health and happhiess 

Canon Farrar and the 

Years afterwards, on the invitation of a 
friend, I visited Westminster Abbey with 
a party from a working-man's club in 
Solio, when we were shown round by 
Canon Farrar. After the Canon had 
talked to us about Major Andre, whose 
monument is in the south aisle, a little 
tailor, who was one of the party, whis- 
pered to me, " The worthy Dean is 
very interesting, but not very correct 
in his 'istory." Later we had tea in the 
hall of Westminster School, and my 
friend said a few nice words of thanks to 
Canon Farrar. Up jumped the little 
tailor and said, " I 'ad 'oped to 'ave 'ad 
the pleasure of proposing the 'ealth of 
the worthy Dean myself ; in fact, when 
Colonel began I felt quite non- 

chalant ! " — From " Some Memories of 
My Spare Time, 1856-1885," by General 
the Right Hon. Sir Henry Brackenbury,

For many years Charles Enschede, of the house of Joh. Enschede en Zonen, of Haarlem, where he personally directs the type-foundry, 
has given himself up to researches in his rich archives. Although he knew of the existence of many curious varieties in his collection of old 
matrices, he was surprised to discover a mass of material which was valuable as a history of the arts of founding and printing in the Low 
Countries. He conceived the idea of pnblishing the results of his work, adding to them the necessary commentaries and offering them in 
a well-arranged volume to the book-collector and the historian. The execution of this project met with great difficulties. One can easily 
understand the great expense necessary for the type-founding and the preliminary work for printing 372 different examples, of which the matrices 
date as follows: 6 of the 15th Century, 9 of the 16th, 52 of the 17th and 305 of the i8th. The study of each example brought a crowd of questions 
which were easier to ask than to answer. It was thus that the work of which the original aim was limited to the typographical collection of the 
house of Joh. Enschede en Zonen, acquired a more general character and became more, as the title indicates, a historical notice of the type foundries 
and their work in the Low Countries from the 15th to the 19th centuries. 

"Talks about Old London " 

Memories of Charles Dickens 

What an immense circulation the Evening 
News must have ; and it deserves it, for 
no paper gives the public a better 
account of everything of any public 
interest ; it is a great power in London 
and the South of England. Just over 
two years ago the Evening News hit upon 
the happy idea of giving every evening, 
under the heading of ' ' Talks about 
London," the reminiscences of some 
living veteran who can tell us of life as it 
was in London half a century or so ago. 
People in every walk of London life are 
giving their experiences, and we hope 
they will continue to do so. Nowhere 
else is to be found such information, 
and we should tliink there would be a 
sale for one or two volumes made up 
from these " Talks," which will be in- 
valuable material for some future

about notable people he has met in the 
literary and theatrical world. 

Remembered Dr. Johnson 

" My grandmother, who lived to be 
ninety-six, formed an interesting link 
with the past. She knew Dr. Jolrnson and 
his famous friend Mrs. Titrate. 

" I remember her describing the great 
lexicographer as ' a most disagreeable 
man,' while her opinion of Mrs. Thrale 

was summed up in the words ' a most 
charming woman with a very bad 

Week-ends ax Gad's Hill Place 

" I was educated at King's College 
School, where Charles Dickens, the eldest 
son of the great novelist, was one of my 

" Occasionally I spent a week-end at 
Gad's Hill Place, where Dickens at the 
time was engaged in writing, I believe, 
' Martin Chuzzlewit. ' 

" Dickens made an extraordinary im- 
pression on my boyish mind. He seemed 
to possess a weird power over everyone he 
met ; there was something oddly elec- 
trical about Mm. One felt instinctively 
that one was in the presence of no 
ordinary man. To me he was extremely 
generous hi the matter of half-sovereigns. 

" A most estimable young man was 
Sydney Dickens, another son of the 
novelist. He was a lieutenant hi the 
Navy, and was drowned hi the Red Sea. 

" He and I spent a Christmas Eve at 
the Polygraphic Hall, where Wilbaja 
Frickell, the greatest conjurer of the day, 
was appearing, The Hall subsequently 
became Toole's Theatre, and stood on the 
site now occupied by Charing Cross 

The Great Globe 

" In the days of which I speak there 
was an extraordmary place of entertain- 
ment in Leicester Square. It was called 
' The GreatjGlobe.' 

" It occupied the whole of the space 
now an enclosed garden. ' The Great 
Globe ' was hollow, and, standing on a 
platform, the visitor beheld panoramic 
views of different parts of the world. 
The present statue of Shakespeare is on 
the identical spot where the platform 

" A map-seller named Wylde was the 
proprietor of - The Great Globe.' How 
he managed to obtain permission to put 
up such a monstrous thing in the middle 
of Leicester Square was a mystery, 
' except that he was a Member of Par- 

" Great have been the changes in 
theatreland within my recollection When 
I was young there were not more than 
half a dozen theatres in the West End. 
Now there must be about twenty-five. 

" And as theatreland has changed, so 
have the tastes and habits of the play- 
i goers. The ' gods ' no longer sit in their 
shirt sleeves or bring with them bottled 
ale. or shy oranges at each other. Their 
sedateness is wonderful to behold. 

" The serious playgoer of to-day is 
more intellectual than liis predecessors ; 
but an element of superficiality pervades 
the ranks of the younger people. They 
want only theatrical ' kickshaws.' " 

It is always the young who are — 
I young.

The Board learnt with regret that 
Mr. J. W. Harden (Messrs. Rivington's) 

had resigned his position on the Board, 
and trusted that he might be induced to 
reconsider his decision. 

A hearty vote of thanks was accorded 
the Chairman of the Board (C. J. Long- 
man, Esq.) for his valued services during 
the past year, a continuance of his un- 
tiring devotion to the interests of the

Booksellers' Catalogues 

Among the duties to be discharged by 
booksellers or their assistants, none 
perhaps are more important or require 
more skill, intelligence and experience 
than those attending the compilation of 
a catalogue. In this connection one is 
surprised that no bibliographer sets 
about to draft a few simple rules for their 
guidance. Yet the subject is not un- 
worthy of notice. Indeed, experience 
proves that a carefully written catalogue 
will bring in more orders more quickly 
than one in which the bookbuyer has 
difficulty hi ascertaining whether it con- 
tains the volume he is hunting for. It 
may be said that we have catalogue rules 
in plenty ; but these have been written 
more for the librarian and the specialist 
than for the bookseller. 

Once upon a time it was thought that 
there was notliing easier than to make a 
catalogue. All you had to do was to 
transfer the titles of books to paper, add 
the prices and dispatch the whole to the 
printer. But those who are acquainted 
with the subject realise that Sheridan's 
joke about " easy writing bemg damned 
hard reading," is specially applicable to 
work of that land. 

The booksellers' cataloguer must de- 
termine first of all whether the volume 
he is about to catalogue should be 
entered under the subject of which it 
treats or under its author. This is one 
of the most difficult questions which it 
is his duty to answer, and upon his 
decision rests the usefulness of the cata 
logue. In this respect a careful, in- 
telligent, and widely-read assistant will 
be of the utmost service to his employer. 
He should avoid such general subject 
headings as Theology, History, Philology, 
Literary Biography, &c. I have before 
me a bookseller's catalogue, divided into 
subjects, one of which is General Litera- 
ture occupying 7 1 pages ! There is a 
limit to human endurance even in the 
task of perusing a catalogue of second- 
hand books. Imagine for a moment the 
trouble and waste of time involved in 
ascertaining what this catalogue contains 
on, say, Scottish Ballads or Wit and 
Humour. Yet, although it has a subject- ] 
heading Bibliography, I find Growall's j 
" Three Centuries of English Book Trade 
Bibliography," Madan's " Books in Manu- i 
script." andMacray's "Annals of the Bod- 
leian Library ' ' under General ^Literature ! j 

This is an easy method of making a ! 
catalogue, but it does not commend itself | 
to the bookbuyer. More definite subject- 
headings are required. The assistant 
whose duty it is to prepare the catalogue 
should find out the^exact subject of 

which the book treats, and decide 
whether or not it is of more importance 
than the author. Nothing but a wide 
acquaintance with literature and a careful 
study of the best bibliographies will 
enable him to do this. Where there is 
any doubt a cross reference may save his 
clients considerable trouble. 

Cross references are not used so fre- 
quently as they ought to be. A book 
which might be entered under the subject 
or under the author should be put under 
the former with a cross-reference from 
1 the latter. Or, in the case of an author, 
some of whose books should be entered 
under the subject of which they treat 
and others under his surname, a cross 
reference will be very useful. Take, for 
example, P. G. Hamerton ; some of his 
books would be entered under Art, and a 
few under Hamerton, P. G. Clearly, then, 
if a bookseller desires his clients to know 
what books he has by that author, he 
must insert after his name in the Art 
section the entry See also Hamerton, 
P. G., and after his surname See also Art. 

When the cataloguer has decided 
what form the entry is to take, he will 
naturally turn his attention to the 
author's surname. In many cases it will 
be easily disposed of, but occasionally 
he will experience some difficulty, and a 
few hints may not be out of place. As 
regards the treatment of compound 
names, librarians do not seem to be in 
agreement. Mr. J. Henry Quinn says— 
" In the case of English compound 
names the best course to adopt is to give 
the entries under the last name in all 
cases " (Manual of Library Cataloguing, 
page 46), while Mr. James Duff Brown, 
in his " Manual of Practical Biblio- 
j graphy," page 102, writes — " All com- 
j pound names to be entered mider the 
first word with references from the second 
or other words." In dealing with com- 
pound names stereotyped uniformity 
is not always to be recommended, but 
one or other of the foregoing rules should 
be adopted and rigidly adhered to. Or, 
better still, the Booksellers' Association 
might take the matter in hand and fix a 
rule. More uniformity may be observed 
in treating surnames with a prefix. All 
English surnames beginning with a 
prefix (D\ De, Le, Mac, O', Van, &c.) 
must be entered under such prefix. 

There is a difference of opinion re- 
garding the treatment of prefixes to 
foreign surnames, but whatever rule is 
adopted should be conscientiously 

In some catalogues the books are 
over-described, while in others they are 
under-described. 5f||. It ■ must |» be remem- 
bered that a catalogue of second-hand 
books is not and ought not to be a 
bibliography. The labour properly ex- 
pended on the latter would be useless on 
the former. A bookseller should describe 
his stock briefly, clearly and accurately, 
having in view that other matters in- 
valuable to the literary student and the 
bibliophile are quite out of place in his 
catalogue. The object of the catalogue 
is to sell the books and to sell them by 
fair and intelligent representations. Any 
special description is best given in a 
separate note set in smaller type. In 
this note it may be mentioned whether 
there is a bookplate.

Publishers' Circular 


Booksellers differ to some extent in 
regard to the order in which they enu- 
merate the features of their books, and as 
regards this point it is inadvisable to 
lay down any hard and fast rule. Of 
course, the number of the item or lot 
will come first, and be followed either by 
the subject or the surname of the author 
with his Cliristian name or the initials 
of it. The other particulars might be 
given thus : — ( 1 ) Full or condensed title 
of the book ; (2) number of volumes if 
more than one ; (3) whether maps, illus- 
trations or other insets ; (4) style of 
binding; (5) condition of the book 
(unless it is intimated on the title-page 
that all books are in " good, sound, clean 
condition ") ; (6) the size ; (7) the price ; 

(8) place of publication (excluding Lon- 
don, which is generally understood) ; 

(9) the date. 

The front or title-page of the cata- 
logue ought to give a brief description 
of the contents of the publication. 
Some bookbuyers do not go beyond the 
title-page, and if it does not suggest any- 
thing in their line they destroy the whole 
catalogue. A fair amount of skill and 
ingenuity can be displayed hi the com- 
position of the title-page. Briefly, it 
should note all the important subjects 
and authors mentioned in the catalogue, 
and be followed with particulars of the 
method employed in its compilation. 

Catalogue readers are usually busy 
men who have acquired the habit of 
skimming over pages with lightning 
rapidity, and the booksellers would do 
well to have some uniform method of 
cataloguing their books.

Australia Bombards U.S. 
Battleship Fleet with 
Post Cards 

Australia's enthusiasm over the recent 
visit of the United States battleship fleet 
broke forth in many ways, including 
elaborate post cards commemorating the 

Many of the postcards show careful 
and ingenious designs, in which the inter- 
twined American and Australian flags 
are the central feature. There are also 
coloured representations of the battle- 
sliips, pictures of Uncle Sam, with verses 
and welcoming mottoes. Two of them 
bear the words and music of " Hail 
Columbia " and " Yankee Doodle." and 
one of the most elaborate has the follow- 
ing verse : 

Welcome, brave kinsmen 
From o'er the broad ocean, 
Hearts warm with friendship 

Extend the glad hand. 
Speaking the tongue of your 
Own mother country, 
Brothers, not strangers, 

You'll find in our land.

Sir Walter Scott and 

Writing from Edinburgh to Mrs. 
Clephane, in 1818, Scott says : — 

" Our principal amusement here is 
Blackwood's Magazine, which is very 
clever, very rash, very satirical, and, 
what is rather uncommon nowadays 
when such superlatives are going in — very 
aristocratical and Pittite. The con- 
ductors are John Wilson and John Gibson 
Eockhart. The former, well known by 
his poems, is very clever but somewhat 
whimsical. Eockhart is a very clever 
fellow, well informed in ancient and 
modern lore, has very good maimers, and 
is, I think, likely to make a very dis- 
tinguished figure in society. They have 
made themselves hated, but at the same 
time feared, by the Edinburgh Whigs, 
who are so much accustomed to have all 
the satire and fun their own way that 
they stare a little at finding their own 
batteries occupied and turned against 
them. I hate personal satire myself — it 
is a clumsy weapon and seldom fails to 
recoil on those who use it. But yet those 
who have set the example in such a kind 
of warfare are not entitled to consider 
themselves as ill-used when met by 
sharpshooters of their own description." 
— From ' ' Some Betters of Sir Walter 
Scott," in Blackwood's Magazine, the 
writer of which makes it clear that the 
real Editor of the magazine was always 
William Blackwood. 

Dr. W. Robertson Nicoll 
on " The Press ' ' 

The Rev. W. Robertson Nicoll, EE.D.' 
Editor of The British Weekly, is to give 
an address on " The Press, Past and 
Future," at the Conversazione of the 
Edinburgh and District Branch of the 
Newsagents', Booksellers' and Stationers' 
National Union, to be held on January 
22nd, hi the Edinburgh Cafe, 70, Princes 
Street, Edinburgh, when Mr. J. B. 
Fairgrieve, President of the Branch, will 
preside. We intended to have added 
somewhere in the above sentence that 
Dr. Nicoll must be a very clever man 
if he can find anything new to say on 
that subject, but the length of the title 
of the Union took our breath away. 
Fortunately the doctor is a very clever 
man, and a very popidar and greatly 
respected one also, which is of more 
importance still. We understand that 
the Bord Provost and the Hon. Bord 
Guthrie have promised to be present. A 
good musical programme has been 
arranged, and among the speakers will be 
Mr. William Ward, of Eondon. 

A Patent Bore Constrictor 

An American Syndicate is to bring out 
a new patent wireless bore constrictor 
for use in legislative assemblies, at public 
meetings, in churches, &c. All the 
audience has to do is to look at a dial 
and wish, and as soon as the wishes that 
a speaker should stop exceed in number 
those for his going on, he automatically 
absquatulates. It is expected that the 
average duration of human life will be 
considerably increased. 

Men of the Covenant.* 

A Brief for the Dogged Fighters for 
Freedom in Church and State 

It is always pleasant to find a worthy 
book has passed into a second edition, 
and Dr. Alexander Smellie's " Men of the 
Covenant," is a very worthy book. It 
is also always a pleasant thing to find an 
author writing thus of his publisher : — 
" I am so deep in my publisher's 
debt that I can discover no language 
that will properly express my obliga- 
tion ; it was he who conceived this 
Edition de Buxe, in which you see on 
Japanese vellum the presentments of 
men and women who wandered in 
deserts, and hi mountains, and hi dens 
and caves of the earth." 
In his Preface to the first edition, 
dated November, 1903, Dr. Smellie says 
with reference to his championship of the 
cause of the Covenanters that he only 
wishes he had the " great language and 
shining gifts " of Mr. Bang, Mr. Mathic- 
son, and Mr. Millar, who have " done so 
much to glorify those who upheld the 
Royal prerogative and the Episcopal 
Rule." But if those " dogged fighters for 
freedom in Church and State," whose 
biographies are given more or less fully 
in these handsome volumes, could have 
any say hi the matter, they would cry 
" God be praised " that the historian of 
their lives and " martyrdoms " are not 
those but this. Although an enthusiast 
for the Men of the Covenant, believing 
them to have been " incontestably right." 
Dr. Smellie hopes he has never been 
conspicuously unfair to their opponents. 
It is a qualification which may or may 
not be accepted ; of course, all his 
martyrs are on one side, and if their 
cause had triumphed the boot which 
pinched so terribly might have been on 
the other foot. 

It is incontestable that the Doctor 
has written a most interesting work — 
where possible he lets his men and women 
speak for themselves, and that, as 
Boswell discovered, is the secret of a 
living biography. There are many de- 
lightful touches, not a little quiet humour, 
but the burden of the story is of tragical 
parting and bloody death met daunt- 
lessly and welcomed as the gateway of 
the glorious life. It is well that the 
history of such men and women should be 
written by one who, like them, has no 

The excellent illustrations are in a 
style hi admirable keeping with the 
nature of the work — nothing delicate or 
cavalier. Stern black and white un- 
compromising cuts — in which you can 
trace every hair hi Mr. Scott Rankin's 
heads, every stone in Miss Pike's Kirks.

"Publishers' Circular" Office, 19, Adam Street, Adelphi 

Book Frauds 

The thanks of the whole trade are due to 
" The Kingsgate Press " for its prose- 
cution of Frank Parkinson, a clerk, who 
obtained books by fraud, by writing 
letters in the names of " The Hon. R. 
Gort " and " The Rev. J. Drysmere of 
the connection," and others. Parkinson, 
it appears, has for some time been in the 
habit of using various addresses (chiefly 
empty houses) in different parts of 
London, ordering copies of new books 
from booksellers and not paying for them, 
and it is entirely due to the smartness of 
the chief lady assistant at " The Kings- 
gate Press ' ' that his operations have been 
suspended. He made a passionate appeal 
for mercy when charged at the Clerkenwell 
Sessions, and pleaded to be dealt with 
under the First Offenders' Act. When 
Parkinson was brought up for sentence on 
Wednesday last (says The Daily Mail) 
Mr. McCall, K.C., went into the witness 
box to support a plea for clemency. 

At the last Sessions Parkinson pleaded 
that he had found it difficult to get work, 
and what he had done had been done to 
provide the bare necessities of life for his 
wife and their child. " I have already 
suffered," he urged, " the terrible pain of 
mental torture and punishment. I be- 
seech you to give me a chance of social 

Mr. McCall said that he had known 
Parkinson for fifteen or sixteen years, and 
had had the highest opinion of his integrity 
and honesty. He would try to hud him 

Mr. Wallace, K.C., the Chairman, 
begged Parkinson to make the best use 
of a fresh opportimity he would have by 
being bound over under the Probation 
Act. One of the conditions would be 
that he was not to enter a public-house 
for six months. 

R. E. King & Co. 

Richard Edward King (of 84A, Staple- 
ton Road, Tooting, and 4, Eagle Street, 
Holborn), appeared under remand at 
Bow Street on Tuesday, January 5th, and 
was further remanded till next Tuesday, 
January 12th. 

Mr. A. W. Holt, of S, Vincent Road, 
Croydon, was called and gave evidence 
that he supplied a set of the 'Encyclo- 
paedia Britannica to King on November 
1 6th, 1908, for which King agreed to pay 
£15. Mr. H. J. Rimmell, Bookseller, of 
53, Shaftesbury Avenue, was called and 
said that he purchased the books and case 
on November 26th, 1908, from the 
prisoner under the name of M. Lewis. 
84A, Stapleton Road, Tooting. Mr. Holt 
received no payment. 

Mr. Allison, of Bridgwater, who sup- 
plied a set of Dickens' works to King in 
December, 1907, had never received any 
payment. Mr. Fairburn, Chemist. North- 
allerton, sent on .September 2nd. 1908, 
a set of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, for 
which King agreed to pay £16. He 
subsequently took out a summons in the 
County Court, but could get no satis- 

Mr. Crompton. of Eastbourne, was 
called and gave evidence that he supplied 
King on October 26th. 1908, with a set of 
The International Library, for which he 
agreed to pay £3. Mr. Crompton identi- 
fied his set of books as being those sold 
to Messrs. Neville & George, of South 
Kensington, by the prisoner under the 
name of M. Lewis, for £1 10s. 

Mr. Batten, of Portsmouth, was called 
and said that he supplied a set of Dickens' 
works on October 16th last, which he at 
first agreed to sell to King for £1 15s., 
but finding that he could not get payment, 
subsequently agreed to take £1 2s. Mr. 
J. Westell, of 106, Charing Cross Road, 
stated that he purchased the set of 
Dickens on October 22nd for 17s. 6d. 
from the prisoner under the name of 
M. Lewis, 84A, Stapleton Road, Tooting, 
London, S.W. 

Mr. Appleton, of Colchester, gave 
evidence that he supplied King with 
8 vols, of Harmsworth's Educator on 
November 5th. for which he had received 
no payment. 

Mr. Rimmell and Mr. Westell stated 
that the Encyclopatlia Britannica at the 
present time was not worth more than 
£7 or £9 to the trade for subsequent 
disposal ; and that the Dickens was not 
worth more than about 17s. 6d.. and the 
International Library, £1 10s. If higher 
prices than these were given it would be 
almost impossible to dispose of them at a 
profit. Neither of these gentlemen knew 
of Messrs. R. E. King & Co.. as W holesale 
Booksellers at 4. Eagle Street. Holborn.

late Mrs. Cashel Hoey (who was well 
known to many publishers and editors), 
should see a very kindly note in Truth 
of December 30th, 1908, about that 
accomplished lady. Here is an extract 
from it : — 

" Her culture was wide. She had 
studied, read, thought much, mixed with 
first-rate people, seen and felt vividly the 
ups and downs of life, and came through 
the latter the stronger in heart and mind 
and the keener in her peculiar wit for the 
experience. Always unaffected and prac- 
tical, I think she would with pleasure 
have darned stockings for the universe. 
There could be no more cheerful worker 
with her pen, or with her needle."

A New 25=Guinea Work 

on Dutch Art 

Messrs. Scheltema & Holkema, the 
well-known publishers and booksellers 
of Amsterdam, are publishing a fine 
work with photogravure reproductions 
of all the known paintings of 

" Jan Vermeer of Delft 


with biographical and descriptive text, 
by Dr. C. Hofstede de Groot. The 
, forty-two photogravures are very fine, 
and range in size from 50 by 40 centi- 
metres down. The page of text is 
exceedingly handsome, but the size is 
enormous, 26 by 20 niches. With 
reference to the work the publishers 
say : — 

The Editor of Publishers' Circular. 
Dear Sir, — By the same mail we have 
forwarded to your address the pros- 
pectus of our publication, entitled 
" Jan Vermeer of Delft and Carel 

We commend this prospectus and 
the accompanying photogravure to 
your kind attention and consideration. 

You will observe that this work is 
indispensable for art critics, con- 

1 noisseurs, painters, amateurs, and 
collectors of old Dutch art. It con- 
tains the reproductions of all the known 
works of these masters, whose art calls 
forth constantly increasing interest, 
and the reproductions are so excellently 
executed that their works can be 
studied without seeing the originals. 
The methods of painting, the entire 
treatment of subjects, how the models 
posed for the portraits, &c, all this 
can be learnt from these photogravures. 
Tliis is of the greatest importance for 
people who study the works of old 
Dutch painters, as there is not the 
slightest doubt that there are more 

I paintings by these masters still extant. 
We hope you may find this of so 
much importance for your readers 
that you will notice the work. The 
portfolio contains till yet only a text 
in Dutch or German language, but we 
shall at once print an English text as 
soon as we meet with some interest on 
the side of the English people. It is 

1 our intention to continue to complete 

this work. As soon as a picture of 
these masters is discovered, we do our 
utmost to have it reproduced and 
publish it hi photogravure. Recently 
Dr. Hofstede de Groot, who is now in 
America, wrote us that he had dis- 
covered another unknown picture of 
Vermeer. We are going to have it 
reproduced, and will publish it as a 
continuation on the work. Never 
of any painter has been published such 
a complete work containing reproduc- 
tions of all his work, and in this size 
and quality. — Yours faithfully. 

SCHELTEMA & Holkema, 


Suffolk Bookseller's Strange 

Harry Edward Harmer, 55, respectably 
dressed, described as a bookseller and 
stationer, of New Market Place, Beccles, 
Suffolk, was charged with begging in 
High Holborn on Wednesday evening, 
December 30th. 

After Police- Constable 574 E had 
described how he saw the defendant 
accosting two gentlemen, and then enter- 
ing a shop and asking for twopence 
towards the cost of a night's lodging, the 
defendant essayed to make a statement 
but broke down and sobbed bitterly. 

Mr. Arthur Martin, the mendicity 
officer, said the prisoner told him he left 
Beccles on business on December 7th, 
having arranged that his wife should join 
him in London two days later. He did 
not meet her — he could not explain the 
reason — and since then he had been 
wandering aimlessly about the country, 
one day -finding himself at Reading. 
During the last few nights he slept on the 
Embankment. He had two shops at 

Inspector Caire added that when the 
prisoner was brought to the station he 
appeared to have lost his memory. Next 
morning he told a story similar to that 
related by the mendicity officer. He 
added that he forgot all about the busi- 
ness which brought him to London, and 
also the appointment with his wife. 

By the magistrate's direction the 
police telephoned to Beccles and ascer- 
tained that the prisoner's wife was, in 
consequence of the message, on her way 
to London. 

Subsequently a friend of the de- 
fendant's, an accountant, practising at 
Co vent Garden, saw the magistrate hi his 
private room, and undertook to accom- 
pany the defendant back to his home. 

On this understanding Mr. Harmer 
was discharged. — Daily Mail, January 1st.

Letters to the Editor 

[We do not hold ourselves responsible for the 
opinions expressed by our Correspondents.'] 


Dear vSir, — We have noticed that for 
some time past the question has been 
raised in The Publishers' Circular as 
to the supply of net books post free. 
We sincerely hope that the result of this 
agitation will be the means of stopping 
net books being supplied post free. We 
should like to bring to your notice how 
this question affects booksellers in the 
Colonies, by mentioning to you a case in 
point which came before us recently. A 
customer of ours objects to our enhancing 
the net published price of books. You 
probably know that it is the rule through- 
out almost all British Colonies to advance 
the price by about 20 per cent., and 
this is not at all excessive when the 
heavy cost of freight and shipping 
charges is taken into consideration. Our 
customer, who, by the way, is a medical 
man, told us that there is a certain firm 
in Edinburgh, whose name we shall 
not mention, who has been for some time 
supplying him with medical books at the 
net published price, post free. This in 
our opinion is a direct contravention to 
the Net Book Agreement, so that the 
question not only affects booksellers in 
England , but hi the Colonies as well. We 
sincerely hope that this matter will be 
seriously taken up by the Publishers' 
Association, and that an agreement will 
soon be arrived at which will prevent this 
sort of thing continuing any longer. 

We remain, Yours faithfully, 

J. C. Juta & Co. 

Cape Town. 

December 16th, 1908. 

[It is an unfortunate fact that both 
booksellers and publishers are divided 
on this question. Our view, as we have 
said from the very first, is that if this 
sending of net books post free becomes 
general, it will destroy the net book 
system. To give a customer 4d. hi 
postage is worse than givmg him 3d. 
discount. Unfortunately, again, there 
are booksellers and publishers who do 
not believe in the net book system, and 
would rejoice to see the wretched discount 
system agahi predominant, fortunately 
they are not at present more than a 
small minority, but unless the spirit, as 
well as the letter of the Net Book Agree- 
ment is adhered to firmly and loyally, 
their ranks will soon grow. — Ed. P.C.] 


Dear Sir, — As one of the earliest and 
staunchest supporters of the net system, 
I wish to draw your attention to a 
practice of some retailers which tends to 
bring it into discredit with the public, 
and thereby to seriously jeopardise it. 
I refer to the practice of making a sup- 
plementary charge " for collection." 

Being retailer as well as publisher, 
I quite appreciate the fact that the 
margin of profit on a net book — especially 
a low priced one — is very small, but still 
I would urge that in the interests of the 
system it is imperative to do nothing to 
increase the antagonism felt by a not 
inconsiderable portion of the book-buying 
world towards it. As is well known, 
many buyers feel a permanent resentment 
at having to pay a " marked " price ; it 
seems to them they are actually de- 
frauded if they do not get some reduction. 
This is a standing trait of the buyer's 
psychology ; it has got to be put up 
with, but there is no sense in borrowing 
trouble by clapping on supplementary 
charges. — Faithfully yours, 

David Nutt. 

57-59, Long Acre, W.C. 

[It was a little remarkable that the next 
letter in our mail after Messrs. Juta's, 
complaining of postage being allowed to 
private customers on net books, was this 
one from Mr. David Nutt complaining of 
booksellers making an extra charge for 
supplying net books because the trade 
allowance is so small ; and yet other 
booksellers can collect and pay postage ! 
—Ed. P.C.] 


Dear Sir, — It is believed that library 
practice is now sufficiently developed to 
warrant the issue of a comprehensive 
work of reference on the subject. As 
publishers have refused to accept the 
risk of so large a nature hi such a limited 
field, it is necessary to issue the work by 
subscription. The volume will be demy 
8vo., containing approximately 700 pages, 
and will be illustrated wherever it is con- 
sidered necessary. Only the foremost 
authorities will be engaged to write on 
their various subjects, so that the book 
will be undoubtedly the most authorita- 
tive and up-to-date. Obviously the 
expenses in connection with a work of 
this size, and of so comprehensive a 
nature, will be very heavy, and it has 
been necessary to fix the price at 30s. 
This price will be increased should the 
volume be offered for sale after publica- 
tion, to non-subscribers, to 40s. If the 
number of subscribers is not large enough 
to warrant the publication, the work will 
not be proceeded with. — Yours faithfully.

WE regret to announce the death of Miss 
Charlotte Low. which took place at her 
residence in Queen's Road. Tun bridge 
Wells, on December 31st. The deceased 
lady was the last Surviving cliild of the 
late Mr. Sampson Low. Sen., and though 
more or less an invalid for many years, 
she nearly attained the age of 78 years. 
The deceased took a great interest in all 
charitable objects and devoted her time 
and energies so far as possible for the 
benefit of others, and was much loved and 
esteemed by all who knew her.

Trade Notes 

Following the announcement a few 
months ago, that the old-established 
bookbinding business of Messrs. Smith 
Brothers, of 1-9, Ivy Lane, B.C., had been 
acquired by Messrs. A. Straker & Son, 
they now inform us that it has been 
decided to incorporate the two names 
and the style of the firm will in future 

A. Straker & Son, Smith Bros., Ltd. 
To prevent confusion with firms of 
similar name they state that they are 
wholesale bookbinders only, and in no 
way connected with the printing and 
stationery trade. 

Mr. A. H. Stockwell of 6 and 7, Creed 
Lane, E.C., has moved to new premises 
at 29, Ludgate Hill, E.C. 

Messrs. Duckworth & Co. have 
arranged for Mr. W. B. Akerman to 
represent them in the country in con- 
junction with Messrs. Chapman & Hall 

Notices of Books 

From Messrs. George Allen & Sons. — " The 

Love Family," by Mrs. Spielmann, with 
fifty drawings (twelve in colour) by Carton 
Moore-Park. The story of the doings of 
Mr. and Mrs. Love and their young folk, 
wherein we view Cupid's machinations at 
close quarters and his effect upon the 
future of Angela and Sir Valentine. The 
drawings are of unequal merit ; how 
delightful, for instance, the one showing 
Cupid engaged in drying himself after his 
rose-water tub, and how unsatisfactory 
the figure of Sir Valentine as he lies listen- 
in.; to Angela playing upon the harp ! 
The letterpress forms a pleasant kind of 
running commentary to the fifty drawings, 
and the get-up of the little book is of 
suitable daintiness. 
From the Same. — " Cannes and Its Sur- 
roundings," illustrated and described by 
Amy M. Beuecke. It is not often that the 
practical and the picturesque are so success- 
fully combined as in this volume. The 
illustrations are things of real beauty, the 
coloured plates showing up delightfully 
against their background of coarse dark 
paper, and yet the book is a mine of 
useful information made easy of access 
by a good index and marginal headings. 
Visitors to Cannes will find it a vade 
mecum, and motorists may find hints 
about roads and distances, &c. 

From the Same. — " The Varying Year," by 
the Right Hon. George W. E. Russell. 
This garrulous and scrappy book is certainly 
not what we expected from Mr. George 
Russell. It seems a curiously purposeless 
string of small talk ranging over a wide 
field (Oxford life, the London Season, 
Motoring, Schoolboys, Bishop Wilberforce, 
Matthew Arnold, Cricket Matches, the 
Franco-British Exhibition, &c), and 
divided under the headings of the months 
of the year. Remarks upon the weather 
are a leading feature. For instance, we 
are told that the effect of March is that 
" the biliary ducts have righted themselves 
and the air, soft as butter, soothes our 
bronchial tubes." Mr. Russell proclaims 
himself a Londoner of Londoners, and 
whilst admitting that town dwellers eat 
too much and take too little exercise, he 
believes that Dulness is the avenging 
angel of Rural life. Well ! 

From Messrs. George Bell & Sons. — " English 
Figure Skating," by E. F. Benson ; with 
illustrations. " There are, so we are accus- 
tomed to think, but two edges to a skate, 
and since, whether proceeding backwards 
or forwards, we can in some sort of fashion 
turn from any one edge to any other, 
revolving either to the right or to the 
left (for we do not see how we can revolve 
in any third way), we should be disposed 
to say that the possible limit of turns has 
been reached. The design, therefore, of 
this treatise is to put down all that has 
been ascertained hitherto about the possi- 
bilities attaching to the skate when trodden 
on and, more or less, controlled by a sktaer 
who performs in what is known as the 
English style." This paragraph, taken from 
the Introduction, adequately describes this 
up-to-date manual on ice figure skating, 
designed for the beginner and also to help 
the skater even when he is well on the 
road to becoming a first-class performer by 
Mr. E. F. Benson, member of the Skating 
Club and National Skating Association 
(First Class), and illustrated with twenty 
prints from photographs taken by Mrs. 
Aubrey le Blond. We cannot help think- 
ing that many who have become enthu- 
siasts owing to the booming of roller 
skating and the great number of rinks 
which have been opened during the last 
year or two will read Mr. Benson's book 
with interest although treating of a some- 
what different subject, and the first lengthy 
frost will find them eagerly practising 
forward and back edges on the nearest 
stretch of ice. An index would be a very 
welcome addition to this capital manual. 

From Messrs. Blackie & Son, Ltd. — " Sir 

Sleep-Awake and His Brothers," by Mr. 
G. J. Whitham. This is an adventure tale 
of the time of the Great Crusade. Sir 
Sleep-Awake Dormer and his brother, 
owners of great estates and treasure 
quarrel through misunderstandings, so the 
one departs on a pilgrimage to the Holy 
Land, while the other fights the Moors in 
Spain. The story of how they are sought 
for through all sorts of dangers and 
difficulties till they finally meet and are 
reconciled is told with a briskness and 
reality which will delight the boyish 
reader. There are a few good illustrations 
by N. Tenison. Such books are a useful 
handmaid to history. 

From Messrs. Chatto & Windus. — " From 
Island to Empire," by John S. C. Bridge. 
With Introduction by Admiral Sir Cyprian 
A. G. Bridge, G.C.B. A short history of 
the expansion of England by force of arms, 
beginning with the Elizabethan seamen 
and the struggle with Spain, and con- 
cluding with an account of the Boer War. 
The style is admirable, being dignified, 
lucid and entertaining. There are several 
maps and plans, and a Table of tbe British 
Empire giving the names of all English 
colonies and possessions with the dates 
and method of acquisition. 

From the Same. — " Joyce Pleasantry," by 
George R. Sims. A volume of short stories 
dealing with the life of the middle and 
lower classes in the direct and forcible style 
with which the name of Mr. Sims has for 
so long been associated. The author has 
a fecund fancy, and his method is vivid 
and life-like. His work has introduced 
him to strange scenes and stories, and 
those which go to form the present col- 
lection are written from actual intimacy 
with the phases of life described. 

From the Same. — " The Little Flowers of St. 
Francis of Assisi." Translated from the 
Italian by T. W. Arnold, M.A., with a Note 
by Dr. Guido Biagi. Both printer, binder 
and publisher have dealt generously with 
this beautiful edition of a great classic. 
The type is particularly choice, the mar- 

gins wide, and the illustrations well chosen 
and excellently reproduced. The cover 
design in red and gold is a replica of a 
binding embodying the arms of St. Francis, 
by Aldus Manutius of Venice, date circa 
1500. Dr. Biagi's sympathetic note is both 
interesting and scholarly. , (. t 1 • |g2j 

From Messrs. J. '.M.JDent.&^o.— " A Little 
Summer at Assisi," by' Clemence North. 
The output of what may be called Fran 
ciscan literature shows no signs of diminish- 
ing. The present slim little volume is 
unambitious in its form and tells of the 
effect upon the characters of three English 
maidens of a summer spent in the Umbrian 
town of Saint Francis. They go to La 
Verna, to the Carceri, to San Damiano — 
who that has trodden the Saint's path can 
ever forget it ! — and though it is all very 
slight and rather dicousu it is to the disciple 
so understandable, evoking the very 
emotions which he has himself felt in 
similar places. We are even prepared for 
the " Brother Train " in which they travel 

From Messrs. Duckworth & Co. — " Some 
African Highways," by Caroline Kirkland. 
With Introduction by Lieut. -General 
Baden-Powell. Miss Kirkland has all 
the intuition and vivacity of a woman, 
combined with the adventurous spirit and 
strength of purpose of a man. She started 
from Naples en route for Mombasa three 
years ago, and travelled through Uganda 
and the Transvaal in company with her 
mother and an Italian maid. Miss 
Kirkland, who is an American lady, 
contributed an account of her adventures 
and observations to the Chicago Tribune, 
and these are embodied in the present 
volume. The book is bright and attractive 
with its yellow cover, admirable pictures, 
and pleasant, gossipy style. 

From the Same. — " God's Message through 
Modern Doubt," by theRev. E. Aldom 
French, is the work of one who has 
evidently felt to the full all the 
modern difficulties in the way of orthodox 
Christian belief, and yet has retailed his 
faith. He has passed through his Slough 
of Despond and surmounted his Hill of 
Difficulty, and can hold out a hand to 
guide others to the Land of Beulah. 
Though apparently originally composed 
as sermons, the wide literary knowledge 
and cogent argumentation of the book 
make it, perhaps, even better suited for 
personal enlightenment and private medita- 
tion ; and it may well prove helpful to the 
Christian to hold fast to his belief in the 
Bible, in miracles, and hi immortality in 
spite of the higher criticism, in spite even 
of such deeper problems as the waste 
and suffering of life. 

From the Same. — " The Second Edition of 
Edward FitzGerald's Rubaiyat of ' Omar 
Khayyam.' " Edited by Edward Heron- 
Allen. Mr. Edward Heron-Allen has for 
some years been well known as a linguist 
of considerable attainments, and as a dis- 
tinguished student of Eastern life and 
literature. Few Englishmen are so well 
fitted as he to undertake the task of 
writing lengthy notes on FitzGerald's won- 
derful translation of the Persian poet. 
Each quatrain is printed on a separate 
page, and is succeeded by scholarly notes 
revealing vast reading and much cultured 
taste. The Introduction embodies a par- 
ticularly interesting letter from Professor 
Co well. 

Messrs. Gay & Hancock have issued a third 
edition of that popular book, " Pushing to- 
the Front, or Success under Difficulties," 
by Orison Swett Marden. Perhaps no book 
since the appearance of Smiles' " Self- 
Help " has contained more wisdom upon 
the art of " getting on." 



Publishers' Circular 

January 9, 1909 

Messrs. Hodder & Stoughton send " The 
Minister's Diary for 1900," a handy 
pocket-book for the nse of clergy and 
ministers, now in its thirty-third year of 
publication, containing besides a diary 
pages for special services, visitations and 
other pastoral engagements. We note that 
while the Sunday lessons are those of the 
Church of England, the list of religious 
societies excludes all but those of Noncon- 
formists. It might be better to issue the 
diary in two forms — one for Church clergy, 
the other for Free Church ministers — and 
this we understand Messrs. Hodder & 
Stoughton intend to do in future years. 

From Messrs. Jarrold & Sons. — " The Little 
Town in the Valley," by Constance 
Nevill. A pleasant account, illustrated 
from photographs, of a little town which 
we confess we have been unable to identify. 
It has a castle, an ancient church, an old- 
world street of stone-built houses, a quiet 
river, a town hall. Soldiers are quartered 
near. Perhaps our readers will be cleverer 
than we are and discover where it lies. 
Its pages breathe a simple piety which is 
probably the frame of mind generally 
induced by a long residence in just such 
a little town. 

From Mr. John Lane.—" The Well of Saint 
Clare," by Anatole France. A translation 
by Alfred Allinson. Those who are imable 
to read in the original the delightful series 
of stories which are grouped under the 
name of the Well near .Sienna, where the 
author met the Reverend Father Doni, 
cannot do better than buy this excellent 
translation. We say " buy " advisedly, for 
this is the kind of book one returns to 
again and again. It is all such wonderfully 
good reading bearing the impress of the 
master hand, so full of laughter and of 
tears, of pathos and of deep insight. This 
series of translations of the works of 
Anatole France, which is being issued by 
Mr. Lane, is marked by a thoroughness and 
finish which is deserving of all praise. 

From Mr. Eneas Mackay Stirling. — " The 
Edinburgh Periodical Press," by W. J. 
Couper, M.A. Vol. 2. Mr. Couper's 
labour of love is now completed ; his two 
scholarly volumes stand as a record of his 
patient industry, and will prove service- 
able to students for the purposes of refer- 
ence. The second volume consists entirely 
of a bibliographical account of the news- 
papers, jotirnals and magazines issued in 
Edinburgh from 171 1 to 1800. The work 
has been prepared with thoroughness, and 
is, we believe, quite reliable. 

Messrs. Macmillan & Co. send us " William 
Morris," by Alfred Noyes, one of their 
" English Men of Letters " Series. William 
Morris was a many-sided man : painter, 
printer, manufacturer, squire, .Socialist, but 
above and throughout all, a poet. It is 
therefore in the fitness of things that his 
life should be written by Mr. Noyes, him- 
self a poet of no mean powers and promise. 
This eminently readable little memoir is no 
mere compendium of previous records, but 
a first-hand appreciation of one artist by 
another, and is worthy of both. 

From Messrs. Marshall Bros. — " Glimpses of 
Indian Life," by Miss Henrietta S. Streat- 
ficld, is a record of two and a half years' 
sojourn among the Protestant missions of 
India. Miss Streatficld modestly disclaims 
any literary merit, but her book has the 
interest which always belongs to the 
faithful and simple narrative of things 
actually seen. She describes with pictures- 
queness the strange life and scenery of the 
East, and her enthusiastic account of the 
great evangelical work now being wrought 
among the women of India cannot hut 
help to awaken among her readers a deeper 
interest in the work of foreign missions. 
There are some excellent illustrations from 
photographs taken specially for the book. 

From the Same. — " Life Radiant," by Sophia 
M. Nugent, is an account of the life of the 
Rev. Francis Paynter, for thirty-six years 
Rector of Stoke, near Guildford. Mr. 
Paynter was a man whose whole life was, 
in the words of St. Paul, " sanctified and 
meet for the Master's use and prepared 
unto every good work," and Miss Nugent's 
loving and faithful record of it may well 
serve, as she hopes, to inspire the reader 
to follow in his footsteps. The book is 
handsomely got up with photographic 

From Mr. Elkin Mathews. — " Man and 
Maid," by Arthur Gray. It would be easy 
to laugh at this strange little book, with 
its amazing avalanche of capital letters 
(Mr. Gray has a quite unreasonable belief 
in their impressiveness), did we not so 
heartily agree with the subject matter — 
" The Cult of the Child," so our author 
calls it ; the insistence upon the sacred 
rights, more especially of the unborn child. 
So much study is devoted to the favourable 
development of the child after birth, and so 
little to the equally important subject of 
heredity and ante-natal conditions. Whilst 
designed chiefly for men's ears, this call 
for serious thought upon a serious subject 
should appeal equally to women. When 
marriage comes to be based upon a feeling 
of the deep responsibility of parenthood, 
we may look for the arrival of the Super- 

From the Same. — " Pan Worship and Other 
Poems," by Eleanor Farjeon. There is a 
good deal of poetic vagueness about Miss 
Farjeon's work, but amid more ambitious, 
and to us less attractive, pieces we light 
upon such a gem as " Dream Ships," on 
page 37. and immediately acknowledge 
that here is the true note of poesy. The 
book is worth buying for this alone, but 
there are other poems of a like grace and 
beauty. If Miss Farjeon will ruthlessly 
avoid too unstudied a form of utterance 
and will remember that what comes 
easiest to her pen may not be the best she 
can give us, then she should undoubtedly 
make her mark. 

From Messrs. A. W. Penrose & Co., Ltd. — 

" Penrose's Pictorial Annual." This is 
Volume XIV., 1908-9, of " The Process 
Year Book," edited by William Gamble. 
This work will be found very useful by all 
who are interested in the production of 
illustration by any of the many mechanical 
processes. There are over fifty contribu- 
tions, for the most part by experts, and 
more than three hundred and fifty speci- 
mens of process work in black and white, 
in tint and in colour. Many of the coloured 
illustrations are screamingly vulgar ; for- 
tunately the majority are at least in good 
taste, and many are exquisite. A work 
like this has to be representative of art 
as it finds it. The cover design is simply 

From Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, Ltd. — " The 

First George in Hanover and England," 
by Lewis Melville. 2 vols. It is with 
George Lewis the man rather than George 
I. the King that this voluniiuous and 
handsome work is concerned, and a great 
part of it is devoted to a detailed account 
of those fifty-four years of his life that were 
spent at Hanover — a subject not before 
treated at length by any English writer. 
In Mr. Lewis Melville's opinion, neither 
the character nor the conduct of George I. 
have received justice at the hands of 
English historians, and a successful attempt 
is here made to remove the several mis- 
understandings generally accepted without 
question in this country. A great deal of 
fresh and most important material is pre- 
sented to the English reader in a style not 
only readable but also fascinating. The 
1 character of the King is analysed with no 

small amount of psychological insight ; 
and the life of the Court, with its jealousies 
and intrigues, is dealt with in a vivid and 
life-like manner. Mr. Melville has, indeed, 
written a work of much more than passing 
interest, for the volumes will take a per- 
manent place in the history of Hanover 
and England. By the kindness of the 
Duke of Cumberland and Count Alexander 
von Kielmansegg many interesting por- 
traits and sketches are included. 

From the Same. — " The Life of Sir Isaac 
Pitman, by Alfred Baker. This is one of 
the most interesting biographies that has 
come under our notice for some time. 
It is the first authoritative memoir of the 
inventor of phonography, and Mr. Baker 
has had full access to family papers. Sir 
Isaac's name is, of course, famous in 
connection with his system of shorthand. 
Originally thought out early in the 
thirties, it was embodied in 1837 in a small 
book, entitled "Stenographic Sound-Hand," 
in 1842 the first number of The Phono- 
graphic Journal appeared, and by degrees 
the system was perfected, the improve- 
ments and additions lasting over a long 
period of years. It is impossible to say 
how deep an influence upon national 
life in nearly every department shorthand 
has exercised. But quite apart from this 
subject, which Sir Isaac made peculiarly 
his own, the record of his strenuous life 
which covers practically the whole Vic- 
torian era (1813-1897) is of great interest. 
He was a many-sided man, a man of deep 
religious feeling, and endowed with many 
noble qualities, and Mr. Baker has made 
good use of the excellent material placed 
in his hands. 

From Messrs. George Routledge & Sons, 
Ltd. — '' Pictured Puzzles and Word Play, 
a companion for the Twentieth Century 
Standard Puzzle Book," edited by A. Cyril 
Pearson, M.A. This book, profusely illus- 
trated, is full of anagrams, puzzles, palin- 
dromes, charades, riddles, and other 
ridiculous odds and ends. Here is a 
specimen : — 

" Why is every angler ipso facto an 
Ananias?" The Editor says, "Al- 
though no such method was asked for 
or expected, we find that the very 
letters of the question can be recast into 
a most apposite reply ! Our answer by 
anagram runs thus : — 

" A liar, he spins gay fancies to a 
woven yarn." 

And the Editor adds " Question and 
Answer are spelt with the same letters." 

" Why is every anagram maker ipso 
facto an Ass ? " 

Although no such method was 
asked for or expected, we find that the 
very letters of the question can be 
recast into a most apposite reply ! Our 
answer proved by anagram runs thus : — 

" An anagram maker ipso facto 
wastes own time with others " 
And the Editor adds " Question and 
Answer are spelt with the same letters." 
Mr. Cyril Pearson, M.A. must not be 
offended — unfortunately, both anagtams 
cut both ways ! 

From the Same. — " Voices of Nature," 
compiled by Mr. E. A. Baker, is a charming 
and pocketable anthology of prose and 
verse selections in praise of the simple life. 
It invites the reader to " come and make 
his calm retreat among green leaves and 
blossoms sweet." The selections range 
over English (and American) literature 
from Wordsworth to the present day ; 
they are chosen to represent every phase 
of Nature, and to suit every mood of the 
Nature-lover : it is a book to make a 
friend of.

The Publishers' Circular 


Prom Messrs. Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd. — 

" The Kalendar of Shepherds : being 
Devices for the Twelve Months." This is 
one of those books calculated to delight 
the fastidious. " Le Compost et Kalen- 
drier des Bergiers " was first printed in 
Paris in 1493, one copy of this edition 
being still preserved in the British Museum. 
In the book now before us each month is 
treated thus : — on the first page is its 
name and number of days, followed by a 
couplet from Tusser's " Five Hundred 
Pointes of Good Husbandrie " (1599) ; on 
the second is a woodcut faced by a black 
letter copy of a rhyme and prose passage 
comparing each month with the twelve 
ages of man (in periods of six years each) : 
these are translations from the French 
original. Breton's " Fantasticks " (1626) 
provides the letterpress of the last four 
pages. The peculiar treasure of the book 
lies in the unique series of woodcuts 
representing man's occupation throughout 
the year and giving a vivid picture of 
country fife in the Middle Ages. We recom- 
mend collectors to secure a copy of this 
book, to which Mr. Diplock contributes an 
interesting introduction, for we believe it 
will rise in price as copies get scarcer. 

From Messrs. Sisley's. — " Vincenzo Bellini," 
by William A. C. Lloyd. It seems strange 
that in these days of Wagner and Brahms 
a panegyric upon Bellini should be pub- 

; lished. Mr. Lloyd's memoir is spoilt by 
exaggeration and want of judgment. Who, 

3 for instance, will agree that " it would be 
difficult to say that he (Bellini) does not 
rank with the greatest names in the art of 
all ages and all countries on account of 
two of his works ? " The book contains a 
full account of Bellini's life and a detailed 
analysis of his works ; in all this Mr. Lloyd 
is interesting enough, but the conclusions 
which he arrives at do not appear to us to 
be sound. 

From Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co.— "Selected 
Speeches," by Sir Edward Clarke, K.C. 
Sir Edward Clarke confesses in his preface 
that the object of this book's publication 
is that he may be remembered by a 
portrait rather than by an epitaph. This 
book is his portrait. He has put all of 
himself into these speeches, so lucid, so 
informed by high ideals, so felicitous in 
phrase. There are thirty-two speeches in 
all on subjects as widely different as the 
Liquor Traffic and Parliamentary Privi- 
lege. The four forensic speeches included 
are of special interest. 

From Mr. Arthur H. Stockwell. — " When 
Women Reign," by Mr. Jesse Wilson. 
Weary of pohtical strife and national 
corruption, Mr. James Cliffe puts himself 
" into a long comatose," and wakes in 
1930 to find a changed England. Women 
have won the franchise and are using 
their power remorselessly. How the 
Women's Parliament becomes more and 
more tyrannical, how the men revolt, and 
how after their brief reign women return 
with joy to their natural sphere, may be 
read in Mr. Wilson's brisk and amusing 

Mr. Fisher Unwin has issued a third impres- 
sion of Mr. Whitechurch's novel, " The 
Canon in Residence," which first appeared 
in 1904. This is sufficient evidence that the 
book contains something more than the 
usual run of novels. 

From the Same. — " The Baronet's Wife," 
by Florence Warden. We have every 
confidence in recommending this capital 
novel to all who like an exciting account of 
the gradual detection of mysterious 
crimes — a healthy, amusing, well-written 

From Messrs. Rowland Ward, Ltd. — "The 
Game Animals of Africa," by R. Lydekker. 
In no region of the world have greater 
advances been made of late years in our 
knowledge of big game animals than is the 
case with those of Africa. In consequence 
of this rapid advance, even naturalists 
find it difficult to keep themselves abreast 
of the present state of knowledge ; while 
in the case of sportsmen this is an absolute 
impossibility. Mr. R. Lydekker has there- 
fore written and Mr. Rowland Ward has 
published, this volume in which will be 
found descriptions of all the species and 
races of African game quadrupeds at 
present recognised by zoologists. The 
author has largely availed himself of first- 
hand descriptions by African sportsmen, 
so that in the matter of habits, &c, the 
book is thoroughly trustworthy. The 
work is lavishly illustrated, and while it 
will appeal largely to the scientific 
naturalist it will be quite indispensable to 
the African big game sportsman ; and, 
as it is issued in small crown 4to. form, 
it will not be too bulky to be carried on 
the march. 

From the Same. — " With Rifle in Five 
Continents," by Paul Niedieck ; translated 
from the German by H. B. Stanwell, 
with 32 full-page illustrations from photo- 
graphs and 174 illustrations in the text. 
This is a work which will interest all lovers 
of sport, and especially those who love 
true tales of adventure in the great wild 
hunting grounds of the world. The 
author says : "It has been remarked to 
me by one who ought to know that ' if 
you describe hunting experiences in foreign 
countries, and want to be believed, you 
must lie.' I have, however, refrained ; 
and have related only facts." We think 
that any sportsman reading Mr. Niedieck' s 
book will agree with us that it bears the 
stamp of truth in its modest record of 
sport among the most dangerous land 
animals of the world. The author is a 
born hunter — keen, cool, confident and 
successful. The illustrations are excellent. 

From Messrs. Williams & Norgate. — 

" The Incarnate Purpose," by G. H. 
Percival, is a series of thoughtful and 
carefully reasoned sermons on the 
Spiritual Unity of Life. Accepting ex animo 
the modern evolutionary view of human 
existence, the writer seeks to justify on a 
rational basis such fundamental tenets of 
religion as the Immortality of the Soul, 
the value of Prayer, the reality of Free Will, 
and the spiritual efficacy of Pain. His 
book should be read by all those thoughtful 
men who feel the need of reconciling the 
incontrovertible facts of science with the 
deeper instincts of the heart. 

From the Same. — " The Fthics of the 
Christian Life," by Dr. Theodor von 
Haering, Professor of Dogmatics and 
Fthics in Tubingen University ; trans- 
lated by the Rev. J. S. Hill, B.D. This 
is Volume 25 of Messrs. Williams & Nor- 
gate's valuable " Theological Translations 
Library," through which Sabatin's " Reli- 
gions of Authority," Pfleiderer's " Primitive 
Christianity," Harnack's " History of Dog- 
ma," and many other important theological 
works have been introduced to the English 
public. Professor Haering's book is well 
worthy of a place in this distinguished 
company. As a member of the Evange- 
lical Church of Germany he writes from 
a strictly Protestant point of view and 
with the needs of his own denomination 
before him. Nevertheless, his book is of 
wide general value from its breadth of 
outlook, its careful analysis of the funda- 
mental principles of ethics and the sincere 
yet reverent spirit with which it seeks to 
interpret the Christian Gospel in the 
language of the age. i

The Publishers' Circular 

January 9, 1909 



Keep in Touch with the Trade 

By Advertising in "The Publishers' Circular" 

"The Publishers* Circular" is read by booKsellers, librarians, and 
all connected with boohs and literature at home and abroad. It possesses 
certain features which make it indispensable, and there is hardly a 
bookseller in the country who does not read and study every number. 

The up=to=date Trade information ; the List of Books Wanted : and 
the detailed particulars of New Publications are some of the weekly 
features which ensure its being bought and read by booksellers, 
librarians, and large bookbuyers generally. 

" The Publishers' Circular " is therefore an excellent medium for 
Publishers' Announcements. An advertisement in its pages is the most 
effective and economical means of reaching the men whose business 
it is to buy books, and who respond to book advertising more than 
any other class. 

Booksellers having rare or second=hand books for disposal should 
try the effect of an advertisement in "The Publishers' Circular." We 
are every day receiving fresh testimony as to the efficacy of our 
advertising columns in this respect.

No. 2 2 20. Vol. 90. 








In The Lamb Shakespeare for Young People, based on Mary and Charles Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, an attempt is made to insert skilfully 
within the setting of prose those scenes and passages from the Play with which the young- reader should quite early become acquainted. To carry 
this out adequately the narrative as set forth by ihe Lambs has been freely adapted. It is believed that this form of presenting the chief Plays to the 
young will, in accordance with a widely-expressed wish from many educational experts, commend itself to teachers and others. Each volume is illus- 
trated by artists who endeavour to reproduce the chief scenes of the action as they would be visualised by the young, while a further feature is made of 
Songs from the Plays set to the best music, arranged for school use by T. Maskell Hardy. Issued in the following stvles, with Special Cover Design,

clear, definite, graded course — each point in it being a point arising naturally and definitely out of what has preceded it, and all the exercises 
suggested being on what children like, common, homely, 'friendly ' objects, both natural and artificial. It will make the teacher's task of 
getting the children to see at once the points which they must seize upon when drawing an object, an easy one, and it will place the teacher 
himself on right lines of thought as regards Object Drawing. "

preparation a series of Physical Wall- 
Maps in Contour. These maps have 
been prepared on entirely new and 
ingenious lines, and the publishers feel 
certain that this method of presenting 
the physical features of a country will 
certainly supersede any system hitherto 
devised. The first map of the series, 
viz., South America, will be ready early 
in February, and the publishers will be 
glad to answer any queries in regard 
to them.

Moder n Aids for Teaching Geography 



Now Ready: Europe, Asia, Africa, North 
America, South America. In Preparation : 
Australia and British Isles. 

MESSRS. G. W. BACON & CO., Ltd., are now issuing a New Series 
of their well-known Excelsior Wall Slaps. The New Series is 
coloured Orographically instead of Politically. The Heights of 
Land are shown by different shades of Green and Brown, and the Depths 
of Water by varying shades of Blue. The same Bold Outlines and 
Lettering as in the original series are retained throughout. 

The Contours have been prepared with the greatest care from 
Governmental and other Surveys, and these Maps will certainly rank 
as one of the most popular, useful, and satisfactory aids for carrying 
out modern ideas of teaching Geography.

Publishers' Circular 

"Better School Books" 

"The Eye as an Aid to Memory" 
For many years past, in onr Educational 
numbers — (they are called so because 
they contain the announcements of the 
principal educational publishers and are 
sent to .the principal schoolmasters) — 
we have urged upon the makers of 
school books the need for more considera- 
tion for young eyes and young brains. 

Without for a moment claiming that 
The Publishers' Circular has been 
more than one of many influences which 
have brought about an improvement, we 
may at least claim that it has helped. 
If you hold a view strongly and are 

in a position to put it plainly before 
many thousands of people who are 
interested in the subject, some result 
must follow — though it does not follow 
that the result is what you wish always. 
But on this particular question there 
surely can be no two opinions : the 
object of school books being to give 
information, the better they are adapted 
to the purpose the sooner will the object 
be gained. 

To give children books in small 
crowded type badly arranged is like 
giving soldiers rifles with poor and 
badly-adjusted sights. Holding this 
view so strongly, it was a pleasure to 
come across the following little article 
in The Daily Mail the other day. Its 
immense circulation makes Lord North- 
cliffe's paper one of the greatest educa- 
tional powers of the day : — 


" The striking difference between the 
school books of to-day and those of even 
a few years ago is shown at an exhibition 
of the latest school books and scientific 
instruments, which is being held at St. 
Paul's School in connection with the 
annual meeting of the Incorporated 
Association of Assistant Masters in 
Secondary Schools on January 8th. 

" Greater attention is now paid to 
the arrangement of the text, with a view 
to its being easily ' visualised,' so that 
the eye assists the brain in the task of 

" Not only is the letterpress clearer in 
the modern text book, but the margins 
are wider and the type is differentiated 
to distinguish between subject matter of 
greater and less importance. 

" The old days of badly-printed 
grammars filled with crabbed text, and 
of lexicons in type so small as to be a 
serious strain upon the eyesight of the 
young, are past, with great benefit to the 
convenience both of master and pupil. 

" Among the new school books of 
interest in the exhibition is the com- 
mencement of a series of county geo- 
graphies, which deal brightly and fully 
with the geology, history, manufactures, 
and notabilities of the counties of which 
they treat. 

" A new line in English literature is 
followed in a well-annotated edition of 
some of the less well-known works of 
English prose writers, such as Hazlitt's 
i ' Characters of Shakespeare's Plays ' and 
Defoe's ' Memoirs of a Cavalier.' " 

A visit to the exhibition showed that 
great improvement is being made in 
many ways in the matter of school-book 
production, and encourages the hop e 
that books which are badly adjusted for 
the sight and understanding of the young 
will disappear from our schools. 

Education in Rifle 

One; of the most important and satis- 
factory educational movements of recent 
years has been the formation of rifle 
clubs in the United Kingdom and in our 
Colonics and Dependencies. There are 
thousands of these clubs now, and hi 
many of our best colleges and schools, 
in our large industrial concerns, in the 
staffs of our chief newspapers, the rifle- 
club is now to be found. It is, of course, 
quite possible to overrate anything, even 
the value of a quarter of a million of 
trained rifle shots ; but it is equally easy 
to underrate their value. Recently, in 
one of our daily papers, a writer stated 
his conviction that fifty thousand seasick 
Germans could land on our shores and 
take England, and that our Territorial 
Armj'- would be mere sausage-meat for 
them. They would find it so indigestible 
that they would soon wish themselves 
back on the sea. They know a safer way 
than that. 

Education in History 

From a German School Book of [950 

" There was once a country called 
Great Britain. There were forty million 
people in Great Britain — very proud 
people, because they had the biggest 
navy in the world, and their navy had 
made them so great and rich and powerful 
that nobody for nearly a hundred years 
had thought of attacking them. They 
said their navy must be double as strong 
as any other navy and ten per cent, 
over — (the Conservatives created the 
' double standard ' and the Liberals 
added the ten per cent, margin). They 
said they had the ships, and the men, 
and the money — and ' Let 'em all 
come ! ' 

" And one fine morning they did 
come. And then these proud Great 
Britons discovered that though they 
had the ships and the men and the 
money they hadn't got any food — not in 
the country. They had nearly all their 
bread stored for them in foreign countries, 
thousands of miles away, instead of 
having it stored in their own islands, as 
they easily might have done. 

" These proud Britons had never 
dreamed of being hit below the belt ; 
they said it was not fair fighting to 
destroy their foodships and run away 
from their warships ; and they began to 
get very hungry and angry. And they 
sent to their Prime Minister, who was 
playing golf on Plymouth Hoe, to ask 
where their food fleet was. And he said he 
could not see it, because it was not in 
sight ; but they need not fear, he had 
wired to Canada for a million tons of 
, wheat and to Australia for another 


The Publishers' Circulai January 16, i 9 o 9 

million, and, with luck, they would get 
some of it through in a month or two. 
And he went on to finish his game, caught 
cold, and then went off to Biarritz, and 
said nothing but very urgent communica- 
tions were to be sent on to him. But he 
left forty million empty stomachs behind. 

" Then Lord Roberts, at the head of 
a million empty soldiers, marched to the 
Houses of Parliament, and he said. 
' Take that Bauble away ! Where is the 
key of the Corn Stores ? ' But nobody 
could find it, and Mr. Winsome Churchill 
said the Prime Minister had gone off 
with it. So they broke open the door and 
found nothing but Blue Books on ' Food 
Supplies for War Time.' 

" Then Lord Roberts got a telegram 
from the German Emperor, with a plan 
of campaign, saying, ' Trust me, I am 
your true friend. Give me your fleet, and 
I will give you food.' And Lord Roberts 
gave him the fleet ; it was no use, it 
was starving. 

" And that is why we are all now 
served by English waiters in our German 
hotels. And that part of our Empire is 
now called Germanglia, and fifty per 
cent, of our best corn is grown there for 
us by our English subjects, who also 
bake our bread for us and eat our black 
bread and horse flesh. 

" And the last King of England was 
called ' Lackbread,' for it was in his 
time they were conquered by famine. 
But it was the Lackbrains, his ministers, 
who caused the downfall of him and his 
proud people. They said it would ' upset 
the corn trade ' in peace time if they 
stored corn for war time. So they slept 
on, letting thirty-five millions out of 
their forty millions exist on a few weeks' 
supply of foreign food, with nothing to 
keep them alive hi war time. But hanging 
them did no good : it was too late. If 
they had taught in their schools that 
money and ships and men are no good 
without bread, then England would be 
England still, instead of being in Ger- 
many. This shows what school books 
can do." 

The Visit of the French 
Assistants to London 

Last week we gave, in French, extracts 
from the account which our French 
friends have published, in which they 
refer so sincerely, and warmly, and 
charmingly to the kindness with which 
they were received when in England. 
One of our readers has suggested that we 
might repeat the account in English, but 
we had already last July devoted several 
columns to describing the visit in English. 
Surely every bookseller's assistant knows 
enough French to read a simple account 
such as that referred to ; if they do not. 

then it is their misfortune — if not their 
fault — and they ought to begin to learn at 
once, especially as they are expected to 
return the visit of our French friends, 
and to understand something of the lan- 
guage will certainly add to the pleasure 
of their visit. Let us add the following 
sentence from the message in French sent 
by Mr. Edwin Pearce, Hon. Sec. of the 
Associated Booksellers, to the French 
Committee : — 

" Vive l'Entente Cordiale ! qu'elle 
devienne encore plus assuree pour le 
bonheur de nos cheres patries ! " 

As only one of our readers has asked for 
a translation, and as he knows French, 
we think it will be unnecessary to give a 
translation, but will with pleasure do so 
even if only half-a-dozen of our readers 
are unable to read French, and say so. 

Notes and Announcements 

" Anne of Green Gables " (published 
this week by Sir Isaac Pitman & Sons, 
Ltd.) will soon be spreading over the 
kingdom like a lovely April day — all 
sunshine and showers. It is an idyl of 
Prince Edward Island by L. M. Mont- 
gomery. Anne steps out of her book and 
captivates the reader just as she does 
everyone in the story. Books which 
' ' boom ' ' in America do not always do so 
here, but this one will. The Prince 
Edward Islanders ought to be proud of 
"Anne of Green Gables." To most people, 
we fear, so far their island has been 
little more than a name and a charming 
Black Prince on a postage stamp, the 
King as a boy in Highland costume. Now 
we shall know it as a land of violets and 
apple blossom, of charming people and 
of irresistible Amie — with the e, she 
insisted on that. The humour is de- 
licious and the writing admirable. 

Mr. Heinemami amiounces for publi- 
cation on the 28th a new volume of 
" Memoirs," by Baron de Freuilly, who 
lived in the years 1768-1828. The book 
is one of exceptional interest, as th • 
Baron started under the Royalist regime 
and survived the Terror, to be made a 
peer of France at the Restitution. The 
Baron thus lived through the most 
interesting period of any history in the 
world, and as a man of good education 
his writing has all the charm of the 
brilliant society of those days. There is 
an introduction by M. Arthur Chuquet, 
Membre de I'Institut. 

The book of Mr. Piuero's play, " The 
Thunderbolt," which was produced last

Books which Messrs. Macinillan have 
ready, or just ready, are: " One Immor- 
tality," a novel, by Mr. H. Fielding Hall — 
( "There are three loves," says the author, 
" that make and keep the world : the 
love of man and woman, the love that 
draws families into nations, and the love 

that holds the world to God. This book 
is about the first ") — ; revised edition, in 
the charming Eversley Series, of Professor 
Walter Raleigh's volume on Shake- 
speare ; " The Religion of the Conunon 
Man." by Sir Henry Wrixon ; a little 
volume by the Bishop of Southwark, 
entitled "The Fulness of Christ"; an 
important work, illustrated, on " The 
Acropolis at Athens." by an American 
scholar, Dr. M. L. D'Ooge ; and a work 
on " The County Lieutenancies and the 
Army, 1803- 18 14," which is written by 
the Hon. J. W. Fortescue, and may be 
described as an " overflow " from his 
" History of the British Army." In view 
of the light thrown on the subject of the 
recruiting of the Army during the Boer 
War, the publication of Mr. Fortescue's 
new work has been specially approved by 
the Secretary of State for War.

"The Whispering Man," by H. K 
Webster, and " After the Pardon." by 
Matilde Serao. 

" Fairbairn's Book of Crests " will be 
re-issued immediately by Messrs. Jack

has always been somewhat costly it will 
be good news to many engravers, draughts- 
men and designers that the work contain- 
ing all the latest revisions and additions 
will shortly be obtainable at a very 
moderate figure. The latest edition 
which is to be re-issued contains no tesn t 
than 5 .000 engravings and 30,000 entries. 

Mr. Charles Battall Loomis has won a 
high reputation in the I'm ted States as a 
humorist, and the announcement of a new 
volume of stories from his' pen is of 
interest. It is entitled " A Holiday Touch 
and Other Tales of Undaunted Ameri- 
cans." and is full of that odd combination 
of American buoyancy and unobtrusive 
pathos wliich is Mr. Loomis's greatest 
charm. This volume will be published by 
Messrs. Bell on Tuesday. 

January 16, 1909 The Publishers' Circular 


Messrs. George Bell & Sons announce

Types of the Old Regime," by Professor

attitude of French Canadians towards 
their own past. " Builders of United 
Italy," by R. S. Holland. An attempt to 
provide a popular introduction to the

Messrs Bell's edition of Iceland's 
"Itinerary" is fast approaching com- 
pletion. The fourth volume, containing 
Parts VII. and VIII. of the " Itinerary,"

fifth and last volume will, it is hoped, be 
ready later in the year. 

The Romance of the East Series, the 
first volume of which is to be issued 
immediately by Mr. John Murray, at 
the modest price of 2s. 6d., is sure of a 
warm welcome from all who are in- 
terested in romance, or attracted by 
the call and glamour of the East. In 
this series the great storehouses of 
Oriental romance will be opened for the 
first time to the public. Tales from the 
Sanscrit, from the Chinese, from every 
language of the East possessing a great 
literature will appear in due course. 
From these vivid narratives of old-world 
romance it will be possible for the reader 
to glean much information of vanished j 
races and the greatness of Empires that 
have passed away. Mr. Claud Field, in 
"Tales of the Caliphs," gives us the 
genuine romance of history, authentic j 
anecdotes of Caliphs of Bagdad and 
Cordova, and marvellous adventures of 
Haroun-al-Rasclnd, concerning which even 
"The Arabian Nights" is silent. Sir 
Arthur Wollaston, in "Tales Within 
Tales," has retold in simple yet pic- 
turesque English the delightful animal 
stories of Pilpai. Others are to follow 
from the pens of Mr. Stanley Lane Poole, 
Dr. Bamett, Mr. Lionel Giles, &c.

MS. in the British Museum" ; the oldest 
and best of its class, is reproduced with 
translation, introduction, appendix, glos- 
sary, index and map, by Mr. A. W. 
Wade-Evans. The book is intended 
primarily for the student of the pohtical 
history of Wales, but it will probably 
interest a much larger public. 

Mr. John Milne informs us that his 
new work " How to Skate on Rollers," 
by Rinker (is. net, cloth is. 6d.), owing 
to the large number of subscription orders, 
is unavoidably delayed, but delivery will 
be made as soon as possible. 

The Oxford University Press is about 
to publish a volume entitled, " The 
Moral System of Dante's Inferno." Mr. 
W. H. V. Reade, the author, thinks that 
there is still an opening for students to 
modify, or even to revolutionise, some of 
the common opinions concerning the 
" Divine Comedy." 

Messrs. Seeley & Co. will shortly pub- 
lish tliree thnely books : — "A British 
Officer in the Balkans," by Major Percy 
Henderson ; " Behind the Veil in Persia

on at the time they were published ; an 
appendix will be added, and the book 
will be issued at is. net in paper wrappers. 

We note that in their new extra large 
type editions of " Sacred Songs and Solos," 
compiled and simg by Ira D. Sankey, 
Messrs. Morgan & Scott have added a 
Consolidated Index, facilitating reference 
to any hymn in the combined volumes. 
This firm is bringing its whole output hito 
line with the spirited forward policy 
which we have been pleased to observe 
during the past twelve months, a trans- 
formation with which the late Mr. R. C. 
Morgan was closely associated, and which 
met with his unqualified approval.

bhid them so sumptuously."

In proposing the toast of " The King." 
the Chairman said we were to be congra- 
tulated upon having reigning over us a 
King who was not only deeply honoured 
and respected in our own country, but 
commanded the respect and admiration 
of the whole world. 

After the toast of " The King " had 
been duly honoured, the Chairman pro- 
posed the health of Her Most Gracious 
Majesty Queen Alexandra, the Prince 
and Princess of Wales and all the members 
of the Royal Family. 

In proposing the toast of " Our 
Guests," the Chairman said : 

" It is with great pleasure that I now 
rise to propose the toast of ' Our Guests.' 
I realise as I look round this brilliant 
company that we are surrounded by 
friends and well-wishers, and certainly it 
is a grand opportunity to prove to our 
wives and families that bookselling is a 
terrible business and the bookseller a 
most hard-working man, especially at a 
public dinner. (Hear, hear). 

" It is difficult among so man}' guests 
to particularise a few, but I should like 
on behalf of the London members of 
committee to thank very heartily those 
of our confreres who have travelled from 
such distant places as Bristol. Binning 
ham, and even from Newcastle, to take- 
part in our anniversary celebration. 

" I would also say how pleased I am to 
welcome representatives of our leading 
newspapers. We only meet them as a 
rule when a big engagement is in progress 
on the battlefield" of Wellington Street 
and it is only right that they should have 
the opportunity of seeing us under more 
favourable conditions, with the war-paint 
washed from our faces and the surround- 
ings peaceful and fraternal. 

" My greatest pleasure, however, this 
evening is to voice your welcome to a 
gentleman who is certainly the liighest 
dignitary in the book world of this 
country' (Applause). Dr. Fortescue is 
well known by name to us all as the 
Keeper of the Printed Books of the 


British Museum, and the author of those 
valuable indices that have helped to 
make the contents of the Museum so 
accessible to the general reader and 
student. I have a very distinct recollec- 
tion as a youth of my first visit to the 
Library, and the feelings of awe and 
reverence that filled me as I entered the 
Reading Room and looked around that 
vast assemblage of the literature of all 
ages and nations are with me still. You 
•can imagine, then, how pleased I am to 
have seated by my side the presiding 
genius of that wonderful place and to be 
able to give him a most cordial and 
hearty welcome. 

" Associated with Dr. Fortescue in his 
work is another gentleman whom we are 
all very pleased to welcome. Mr. Barwick, 
the Superintendent of the Reading Room, 
occupies a position which perhaps brings 
liim more into touch with the general 
public, and while expressing our pleasure 
at his presence, I am glad to be able to 
take the opportunity of testifying per- 
sonally to the unvarying kindness and 
courtesy which is always accorded to 
visitors and readers. I am not alone in my 
experience, for similar remarks have been 
made to me from many quarters. (Hear, 
hear, and applause). 

" Before sitting down I should like'to 
say how pleased I am to be ablc.' ; to 
express my thanks to another gentleman 
who has greatly honoured us by accepting 
our invitation. Mr. Herbert Baily — ■ 
(cheers) — the able editor of our finest art 
magazine, the Connoisseur, is well known 
to very many of us, and esteemed by all. 
He is a man who has strong sympathies 
for things antiquarian, for old furniture, 
old lace, old plate, old pictures, old prints, 
and especially, as I well know, for old 
books. Consequently, his presence among 
antiquarian booksellers is most fitting, 
and we are delighted that he should be 
in our company this evening. (Cheers). 

" Gentlemen, Members of the Inter- 
national Association of Antiquarian Book- 
sellers, I ask you to join me in drinking 
the toast of ' Our Guests,' coupling with 
it the names of Dr. Fortescue and Mr. 

The toast being duly honoured, 
Dr. G. K. Fortescue rose to reply : 

" Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentle- 
men, who have been so exceptionally 
kind and, I am afraid, so exceedingly 
injudicious, as to ask me to reply for the 
guests. I can only say there is no guest 
who is so grateful as I am for the excellent 
dinner and delightful entertainment pro- 
vided for us. (Hear, hear). 

" In responding to this toast, I may 
say that I represent an institution which 
I suppose is more deeply indebted to the 
antiquarian booksellers of London than 
any private collection or anything else 
in the world. I could gladly quote a 
hundred instances in which the book- 
sellers of London and of the United 
Kingdom have shown a spirit of extra- 
ordinary generosity and patriotism in 
dealing with the Museum. (Hear, hear). 
I could tell you again and again of books 
which the Museum could never have 
purchased if it had had to go into the 
open market, but which have been offered 
to them by the booksellers, many of 
whom are present this evening. 

" I saw in one paper to-day that the 
British Museum now contained about 
thirty-five miles of bookshelves and two 
million of books. That was a tremendous 
under-statement. The number of books 
was nearer four million than three million, 
and our shelves extend to forty-eight 
miles. (Applause). If it were possible to 
estimate all books printed since 1800, 
I take it we have not more than a third 
of them, and it will take many hundreds 
of years before we can say we have all 
the books that are printed. We have 
lately been devothig ourselves to making 
the collection of incunabula as complete 
as possible. After exertions extending 
over many years we have acquired about 
ten thousand incunabula. The greatest 
number of books printed before 1 500 was 
twenty thousand ; some people, very 
good judges, estimated it at thirty 
thousand. This proves how very far 
from complete we are at present. 

" The Museum itself owes more to 
one bookseller than to any other bene- 
factor, and I myself am under the

Chairman of the Second Annuil Dinner of the 
International Association of Antiquarian Book 
sellers, at the Criterion, Wednesday, Jan. 13th. 

deepest obligation to that bookseller. 
This was George Thomason, of the ' Rose 
and Crown ' in St. Paul's Churchyard, 
who died in 1665. In 164 1 he made up 
, his mind he would collect every book, 
pamphlet and newspaper that came out 
I during that time. Between 164 1 and 1663 
, he collected twenty-four thousand volumes 
■ which, through the generosity of George 
III., passed to the British Museum. 
1 These are often called the King's Pam- 
phlets ; I prefer to call them Thomason 
Pamphlets. (Hear, hear). Milton pre- 
sented Thomason with a copy of each of 
his works, putting his name upon the 
title-page of each." (Applause). 

Mr. G. F. Barwick, in a few words, 
expressed his gratitude for having been 
invited and the pleasure it gave him to 
be present. He was grateful for the kind 

words which had been spoken respecting 
his position as Superintendent of the 
Reading Room. He was glad to help 
visitors to the Museum whenever possible, 
but it was not to the booksellers he had 
a chance of offering any help ; they knew 
far more about books than he did. All 
he could do really, he said, was to help 
an American who came to the Museum in 
search of a pedigree, or some faddist 
from the country who could not under- 
stand the catalogues, or perhaps som> 
man from Yorkshire who had only ten 
minutes in London and wanted a book 
in a hurry. (Applause). 

Mr. J. T. Herbert Baily then rose to 
propose the toast of "The Association." 
He said he was deeply flattered and 
honoured by being called upon to propose 
this very important toast. As he came 
into the room this evening he met an 
old friend, and, being anxious to discover 
a few notes on which to base his speech, 
he asked his friend for advice ; where- 
upon he was told to make it as brief a> 
possible. (Laughter.) He had, however, 
discovered a very important piece of in- 
formation since he had come into the 
room. This was Dr. Fortescue's remark 
which must have given great satisfaction 
to members of the Association — that 
there were forty-eight miles of book- 
shelves in the British Museum. But he 
had said, what about the new building 
which was rapidly being completed ? 
Well, Dr. Fortescue had informed hin: 
that then there would be another forty- 
eight miles of empty shelves to be filled 

He referred to the extraordinary- 
method adopted by the Secretary in 
inducing him to give the toast of " The 
Association." Some time ago a distant 
voice on the telephone had remarked 
that, as he knew everybody in London 
perhaps he could obtain some important 
statesman to come on January 13th 

He replied that he should be only too 
delighted, but he believed they were 
occupied in making provision for Old Age 
Pensions and the abolition of all taxe- 
upon books, and would therefore be 
unable to come. (Laughter.) The Sec- 
retary then asked if he knew any pro- 
minent Socialists, but at a moment'. 5 - 
notice he feared it was impossible. Mr. 
Bernard Shaw and those sort of people 
were very much in request and difficult 
to get to a trade dinner. He understood 
that a good many of the antiquarian 
booksellers were Socialists, and that they 
had some arrangement for dividing their 
profits. (Laughter.) Finally the Secretary 
said — would he do it himself ? Well, here 
he was ; and being here he thought or 
telling them a story, but he was afraid 
they would find it very depressing. It 
referred to an American gentleman who 
was a great buyer of Caxton's and other 
priceless early prints. This gentleman 
had made a journey to England, where 
he had sojourned for a time, no doubt 
intent upon seeming bibliographical 
treasures. When he returned to America, 
and his 400-h.p. motor-car was waiting 
for him at the docks, he asked his negrc 
chauffeur for news of his home during 
his absence. " Well, Mas'r ! " said the 
negro, "it seems an age since you went 
from home. Poor Fido's dead." " What,

The Children's England. By Gkace Rhys, Holder of 

the Higher Certificate of the Froebel Society. With 4 Maps 

and numerous Illustrations, is. 6d. 
This book is simple enough to be read by an intelligent child of eight 
years, while there is matter in it of a kind to interest one of twelve or 

" The book is one of the most interesting that we have seen, and 
is withal packed with just the right kind of information." — Teachers' Times. 

" Nothing of the kind which has been published of late excels this 
book in thoroughness coupled with simplicity. No child could read it 
through without realising England's commercial importance, and at the 
same time be imbued with sound ideas concerning our individual respon- 
sibility as citizens." — Irish School Weekly. 


Cassell's Elementary Algebra. By V. M. TURN- 
BULL, M.A., Senior Mathematical Master at the Perse School, 
Cambridge. Cloth, 2s. 6d. 
" This is an excellent Elementary Algebra which takes one as far as 
geometrical progression, with a short section on indices and logarithms. 
Revision examples are given at various stages ; a large number are original 
. . . easy, simple equations are introduced early, and the solution of the 
quadratic equation with numerical co-efficients is placed before the solution 
of simple simultaneous equations. ' Graphs ' are well treated, and the 
graph illustrations of the variation of functions, with special reference to 
the roots of equations, are extremely good. The book should prove a 
valuable addition to the elementary mathematical school books."

you scoundrel " * said the American, 
"my favourite dog dead?" "Yes, 
Mas'r ! " responded the chauffeur ; " you 
see, the little fellow was in the barn when 
it was burnt down." " What, you 
scoundrel ! " said the gentleman, growing 
exasperated, " my five-hundred dollar 
barn, where I keep all my beautiful 
books, burnt down. How did it get 
burnt down ? " " Well, Mas'r, sparks 
from the house set it on fire." " What, 
you scoundrel ! House on fire. How 
did it get on fire ? " " Well, Mas'r, 
your old mother wanted candles in the 
room when she died, and they set fire to 
the curtains." " What, you scoundrel ! 
My mother dead ? " " Well," said this 
mournful tale-bearer, " you see, when she 
heard that your wife had run away with 
the gardener she fell down dead suddenly 
from heart failure." After the loud 
laughter which greeted this story had 
subsided, Mr. Baily said that they 
evidently had not found it so depressing 
after all. He followed with some good- 
humoured banter over the Association's 
change of nomenclature in the second 
year of their existence, from The Second- 
hand Booksellers' Association to The 
International Association of Antiqua- 
rian Booksellers. In extenuation of 
their offence, he recalled that certain 
firms in Bond Street did not call them- 
selves dealers in secondhand pictures. 
They call them " old masters," said Mr. 
Baily naively, and his audience roared 
with laughter. He told another story, 
which was well received, of a young col- 
lector who, after considerable effort, had 
managed to save 4d. This person then 
went to a secondhand bookseller's shop 
and asked for a copy of the " Last of the 
Mohicans," which was priced at is. 
After a lot of wrangling he secured the 
book for 4d. ; then, turning round to the 
shopman, he exclaimed triumphantly, 
"That's id. a Mohican!" (Laughter.) 
Subsequently Mr. Baily pointed out that 
a secondhand bookseller needed to 
exercise the greatest discrimination in 
his calling, and observed that only after 
a long and arduous life of toil could he 
properly understand the business in 
which he was engaged, his remarks being 
warmly endorsed by the company. He 
touched upon the importance of the 
Association in uniting them all together, 
and concluded with a peroration regarding 
the moral and intellectual value of the 
books sold as " old," which he said con- 
tained between their covers the greatest 
thoughts of the human race. (Pro- 
longed applause.) 

Mr. Henry F. Stevens (Vice-President) 
in replying for the Association, thanked 
Mr. Baily for the kind and eloquent 
manner in which he had proposed the 
toast of this Association, also the com- 
pany for the manner in which they had 
received the toast. He would like to tell 
those present of an antiquarian book- 
seller he read about in an old book who 
was requested to make a speech or lose 
his head. Contrary to expectation, he 
chose the latter alternative. (Laughter.) 
Although no such fate awaited him, he 
was somewhat at a loss to know how to 
treat the subject, because so much had 
already been said relating to this Associa- 
tion ; but it had occurred to him, if he 
could possibly find out something to say 

about booksellers in olden times — pre- 
historic times — it would prove interest- 
ing. (Hear, hear. ) He went to the 
British Museum ; but search as he would 
among the forty-eight miles of books, he 
could find nothing about booksellers of 
that period, so he came away wondering 
what on earth he should speak about. 
As he was leaving the Museum, he asked 
the porter at the lodge, " Can you tell 
me anything about the booksellers of 
Ancient Rome ? " The porter asked him 
to step into the lodge, and said he thought 

I he could find something. (Laughter.) 

' ' ' Turning to a huge Encyclopaedia, which 
nearly filled the porter's room, we found 
the following under 'Booksellers in Rome': 
' Little is known of the history of book- 
sellers in Ancient Rome, but something 
may be found about it in a certain book 
of Livy.' Unfortunately, our copy of 
that work has been lost, and on making 
inquiries, we find everybody else's copy 
is lost. (Laughter.) So it appeared useless 

! to try to trace that source. Everything 
comes to him who waits, however, and a 
day or two afterwards I happened to be 
looking through some old books, when, to 
my surprise, what should I find but a 
copy of the lost book of Livy. (Laughter.) 
I found it was printed in Rome in the 

' year a.d. 5 B.C. (Laughter.) On turning 
this over to see if I could find anything 

; about booksellers, I came across a 
description of bookselling which con- 

{ vinced me that our society of the present 

j day is a re-incarnation of the society 
which existed at Rome nearly 2,000 
years ago. (Laughter.) Wlien I tell you 
the officers of that society dwelt in the 
same towns, and lived in the same streets, 
and their names were the same, making 
allowance for the transition of the Latin 
roots, Latin roots became merged in the 

' Gaelic, Teutonic, &c, you will, I am sure, 
be convinced that there is no room for 
doubt. I will instance a few : — 

Praeses super ripam. — The President 
(Mr. Maggs) dwelling on the banks of the 
river — i.e., the Strand. I) 

Sobrius M agus — the sober and learned 
one. Livy was evidently so struck with 
the virtues of this extraordinary man 
that he breaks forth into verse in his 
honour : — 

Sine qua non et librorum 

Pro bono publico pons asinorum 

Etiam quantum suff Cockalorum. 

A passage I found extremely difficult 
to render into English verse, but catching 
the evident spirit of the Latin, I respect- 
fully submit : — 

His learning it was deep 
And his sobriety was such 

He never drank a cocktail for 

Fear he'd take too much. (Laughter.) 
j Who can doubt the ancestry of our 
esteemed President ? 

Cuslos thesauri in foro feni — the 
guardian of the treasure — dwelling in the 
[ Market of Hay. 

Tomaeus Confabularius — Thomas the 
Chatterer. Evidently the progenitor of 
our well-loved Treasurer, Thomas Chatto, 
whose words of wisdom carry such weight 
when in our monthly conclaves he 
addresses us on the solemn matter of the 
reckoning of our sestertice. 

Scriba — the Secretary. 

Franciscus Cams Laci — the free and 

easy one of the Lake. Evidently the 
ancestor of our worthy Secretary, Mr. 
Frank Karslake, who evidently believes 
in keeping the Lake business in the 
family, for I see with him the Lady of the 
Lake, also the Lakelets — all residing in 
Pond Street ! (Laughter.) 

Gualtherus Laterna — Walter the Lan- 
tern. Evidently of the family of our 
Walter Leighton, that bright shining 
lantern of learning we hope shortly to see 
guiding this Association from the Pre- 
sidential chair. (Applause.) 

Benignus Dolabellus — which can 
only translate as the ' kindly and hand- 
some one, with the dollars,' evidently an 
ancestor of our one-and-only Bertram 
Dobell. (Laughter.) 

Georgio Gregario cum globis — George 
the Herder — evidently of books, if one 
recollects the immense stock now in the 
possession of our worthy Consul at Bath 
Cum globis would suggest maps or globes 
but I think it refers rather to the family 
fondness for bowls and skittles. (Laugh- 

Gulielmus Phimosis ex mediis comi- 
tatibus — William the Downy-one, from 
the Midland Settlements. Evidently the 
ancestor of our genial Consul from 

Josephus Jucundus — the Jovial Joseph 

Gulielmus Favonius et Filii — William 
Westerly Wind & Sons. 

Jacobus Tenuis — James Thin, of Edin- 

I lie caverni leonorum — He from the den 
of lions. The undoubted ancestor of our 
Walter Daniel. I once knew a Mr. 
Daniel whose wife's name was Leonora 
Daniel, another instance of keeping tfu 
lion-taming business in the family. 

Carolus Serrarius — Charles the Saw 


Gulielmus Fasciculorum — William of 
the Bundles or Faggots — hence Wm. 

Gulielmus Fabulator ex comitate Lan- 
castrice — The tale pitcher ' who coomes 
fra' Lancasheere.' 

Cuslodes principales librorum fr aires — 
The brothers, the chief custodians or 
warders of books — evidently 'in tin 
vernacular the 'chief or 'ead wards.' — 
(Laughter. ) 

Albus omnis meus oculus cum specu- 
laria nova — The white or innocent one ; 
all my eye. I failed to identify him at 
first, but the clue comes in specularia 
nova. I thought at first this meant ' with 
new speculations,' but more literally I 
think it can best be rendered ' with a 
new window.' Hence, we get our es- 
teemed colleague, Albert My-eye-ers. 
(Oh ! Oh ! and laughter.) 

Ex officio Dux tres coloniarum — A 
member of the committee by reason of 
his office, the leader of the three colonies. 
What can this mean ? I almost despaired 
of solving it, but the interpretation 
dawned upon me suddenly, and I flatter 
myself I have made one of the most 
important and interesting bibliographical 
and historical discoveries of the age. 
(Laughter.) Strange and incredible as 
it may appear, we have in those few 
mysterious words evidence that the 
" knock out " was known to the Ancients

The Publishers" Circular 


— nay, more, practised in the most 
scientific and up-to-date method of 
modem times. Gentlemen, you have only 
to find the synonym of 'Colonies,' and the 
phrase becomes as clear as day : ' The 
master of the three settlements.' I am 
glad to be able to tell our friends and 
guests that no such office exists in our 
Society ; in fact, there is no necessity 
for it, as all such practices died a natural 
death on the advent of the new system 
«f selling books by the thousand words or 
by weight. (laughter.) 

Last but not least on the list comes 
Jacobus Tveoscula — James Three-kisses. 
Clearly the ancestor of our genial James. 
In the transmigration of this family to 
Cornubia the Latin name became merged 
in the Celtic, and odulum became kiss. 
But Trekiss would sound silly, so another 
attribute of the family had to be added 
to the patronymic ; hence we get Tre- 
gaskis. (Laughter.) You will all 
thoroughly recognise the wisdom of the 
committee in choosing our genial James 
to respond to the toast of ' The Ladies,' 
for what could be more suitable for the 
purpose than natural gas and kisses ? 

Mr. Albert Myers then rose to propose 
the toast, "The Ladies." "On looking 
around me," he said, " I think it would be 
politic to describe this as the toast of 
the evening. It is just a fortnight ago 
since I was threatened with this honour, 
and from that day to this I have neither 
slept nor tasted food. (Laughter.) But 
if I have not tasted the ordinary food I 
have at least devoured every book from 1 
which I could gather anything concerning 
woman. (Laughter.) Having exhausted 
my own stock, I spent many weary days 
at the British Museum. I want to be 
particularly careful not to exaggerate, so 
I won't say I read every book. There 
were three I did not read. They were in 
Russian. I have been exploring the 
wisdom of the centuries, and during that 
time I have not come across a single man 
who understands woman. (Laughter.) 
I have made no headway in the study 
of the sex. In these circumstances I 
thought the best thing I could do would 
be to seek the assistance of a lady whose 
name has been heard of late. So I wrote 
to Mrs. Spankhurst — (laughter) — to ask 
her what I should say. Her reply was 
characteristic. She says : — 

Dear Sir, — I am obliged by yours 
of the 4th inst., and could not help 
smiling at your childlike simplicity in 
thinking you could understand the sex, 
of which I am so worthy a member. 
The man who could has not been born. 
You have probably heard of a book 
called ' The Light of the World.' 
Well ! that is another name for 
woman. And what a part she has 
played in the life of the Universe. 
Without her the Albert Hall would 
have closed its doors, and Caxton Hall 
would have been in the hands of the 
receivers. I am unable to speak of 
myself ; my virtues are known and 
appreciated by every member of the 
Universe. (Laughter.) 

I have said that we do not understand 
woman. But upon one thing I think we 
are all agreed : that woman is the poetry 
of the world in the sense that the stars 
are the poetry of Heaven. (Hear, hear.) 
Clear, light-giving and harmonious, they 

are the terrestrial planets that govern 
mankind, and I am convinced of the 
hearty response you will give to this 
toast of ' The Ladies and Mr. James 
Tregaskis.' " (Prolonged applause.) 

Replying for "The Ladies," Mr. 
Tregaskis said : 

Mr. Myers and Gentlemen. — Some 
time ago, meeting the Chairman. I asked 
if I could be put on to a toast for the 
dinner, and was given this pleasant task 
of replying for the ladies. I worked at it, 
and have worked at it for six months, to 
make it go with a swing. (Laughter.) 
I have tackled Dr. Fortescue's forty-eight ! 
miles of literature, I have resorted to I 
dear old Burton. I read, I made copies, j 
extracts : I wrote the thing about forty 
times. I got it typewritten, and then 
I read it to the children. They said, 
' Father, it's lovely ! ' (Laughter). But 
of course one gets from one's family 
circle all sorts of compliments. I thought 
the best thing to do would be to go 
outside. I went to dear old Karslake. It 
was in nice form, nicely written, it was 
epigrammatic, it was fine, it was litera- 
ture. He said, ' My dear boy, the girls 
will like it, the women will like it ; but 
the men won't have it at all. It's too 
thick ! ' I have chucked up fishing in 
Norway for it. I thought it alright. 

"Mr. Myers and Gentlemen. — You 
have talked very nicely about the ladies, 
but you are not to bamboozle us. We are 
women, we are mothers, we are daughters, 
we are sweethearts — I am not a Suffra- 
gette — and I want to talk to you about 
domestic matters. (Oh, oh.) What do 
you do from the time you leave home 
about tight o'clock in the morning, till 
the time you get home ? You go away 
with a little black bag and you go to 
your Russell Street, you go to your 
Strand, or to your Brewer Street, or your 
Charing Cross Road ; and you, Albert 
tin Good, you go to your Holborn — or 
you say you do ! I want to know what 
you do. (Laughter.) We are women, 
mothers, daughters, sisters. What do 
you do ? Shame on you ! You return at 
twelve o'clock at night, reeking of cigars, 
hands covered with chalk ! We are 
women, and we have our feelings ! Tell 
us what you do ! (Laughter.) 

" Mr. Myers and Gentlemen. — We are 
not cross — we thank you for what you 
have said ; but will you ask us next 
year ? If so, on behalf of the ladies, 
I thank you." 

The toast of "The Trade Journals," 
coupled with the names of Mr. Marston, 
Mr. Murray and Mr. Whitaker, was then 
proposed by Mr. E. F. Wesley : 

' ' There is another trade journal 
which I suppose our esteemed secretary 
represents, and therefore, with your 
permission, I should like to add Mr. 
Karslake's name. I think this is a verry 
happy opportunity of thanking the 
trade journals collectively and personally 
for their intelligent advocacy of every- 
thing that is best for the Trade in all 
its departments. (Applause.) 

" We owe much to their accuracy and 
their kindness in all their dealings, and 
we have to thank them for joining in the 
committee and for their advice. 

" The Bookseller has had a very long 
career, so has The Publishers' Circular, 
The Clique not so long, but equally useful, 
and also The Book Auction Records. 

(Applause). They do their work and 
help us, and we thank them most heartily 
for all their kindness and for all that 
they have done for us, and I would wish 
you now to join with me in drinking the 
toast of ' The Trade Journals,' repre- 
sented by Mr. Whitaker, Mr. Marston, 
Mr. Murray and Mr Karslake." 

Replying on behalf of The Bookseller, 
Mr. G. H. Whitaker said that last year 
when he proposed the toast he ventured 
to predict a very brilliant future for the 
Association. He felt sure, from the 
progress that it had made during the last 
twelve months, that what he had foretold 
last year had been very amply fulfilled. 
Such a large gathering as that present 
gave the most hopeful promise of a 
brilliant future. 

Mr. F. Walton Marston, responding 
for The Publishers' Circular, said : 

" Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentle- 
men. — -As the representative of one of the' 
trade journals included in the toast, 
I thank you all most heartily for the kind 
way in which you have received it. I am 
sorry my father, Mr. R. B. Marston, was 
unable to be present this evening, for he 
would have done much more justice to 
the occasion than I possibly could. 
I may mention, although it may not 
interest you, that this is the first occasion 
I have been called upon to speak in 
public. I hope, therefore, you will 
receive what I have to say with very 
great indulgence. (Applause.) I may 
add that until four o'clock this afternoon 
I had no idea I might be called upon to 
say anything, and this fact has weighed 
very heavily on my mind the whole 
evening. Were it not for fear of the 
awful fate of the Antiquarian Bookseller 
referred to by Mr. Stevens I would have 
tried to escape. I thank you all. ladies 
and gentlemen, for your kind appreciation 
of the toast." (Applause). 

Mr. Murray, replying for The Clique, 
in the course of an interesting and 
amusing speech stated that he also was 
not aware that he would be expected to 
say anything and had come quite un- 
prepared. He reminded the members of 
the I.A.A.B. that it was he who suggested 
the alteration of title from ' ' secondhand ' ' 
to " antiquarian." " Secondhand " was 
a phrase he did not like at all ; it did not 
sound nearly so impressive and important 
as " antiquarian " ! (Laughter.) The 
flourishing state of the Association was 
very gratifying, and he, in common with 
the other trade paper representatives 
included in the toast, would do all he 
could to promote their interests. 

Mr. James Tregaskis proposed the 
health of " The Chairman," and, after 
the reply, Mr. Karslake, in an able and 
telling speech, stated how gratifying it 
was to all connected with the Association 
to see so many members and friends 
present. He referred in warm terms to 
the guests for their brilliant and enter- 
taining speeches, and whilst disclaiming 
that the publication he was connected with 
was a trade journal, he joined the trade 
journals in their expressions of goodwill. 

The thanks of all were due to the 
artistes for the splendid musical enter- 
tainment, to the Hon. Sec. of the 
Association (Mr. Frank Karslake), and 
the Dinner Committee for the way they 
have again worked to make the Dinner 
a success.

Greenland flapped at Last 

The World's Largest Island 

A complete map of Greenland, the 
world's largest island, if we call Australia 
a continent, is published for the first 
time in Petevmann' s Mitteihmgen, the 
great German geographical magazine, 
from surveys made during two years 
past by Dr. Mylius-Erichsen, who lost 
his life when returning from his com- 
pleted work. Says a correspondent of the 
New York Sun : — 

neighbourhood of Bering Strait. With 
this idea in view he wrote the instructions 
for the second German North Polar 
Expedition under Captam Koldewey, who 
was sent out to complete if possible the 
mapping of the east coast. 

" He succeeded in reaching by a 
sledge journey only 77° north, a little 
beyond Cape Bismarck. We now know 
that more than 1,000 miles of tortuous 
coast-line stretches between his highest 
north and the northern shores of the 


" The trend of the north-east coast is 
very different from what geographers had 
supposed. It had been marked on all 
previous maps as probably extending from 
about 7 8° north latitude in a general 
north-west direction to the Independence 
Bay of Peary. In fact, it extends for 
about 300 miles in a north-easterly 
direction till its most eastern point 
nearly touches 12° west longitude from 

" About forty years ago Dr. A. Peter- 
mann spread the view that Greenland 
probably extended across the Pole and 
down the other side of the earth to the 

" Then, in 1905, the Duke of Orleans 
on the steam-yacht Belgica pushed over 
100 miles to the north of Cape Bismarck, 
but fog prevented him from making a 
satisfactory survey of the coast-line. 
Meanwhile, Dr. Mylius-Erichsen formed 
the plan of making a complete survey of 
the unknown coast of Greenland from 
Cape Bismarck north till he joined his 
survey with that of Peary, and thus 
complete the map of the island. 

" He started on the steamer Denmark 
from Copenhagen on June 25th, 1906, 
picked up three Greenlanders and a lot 
of Eskimo dogs that had been sent to the 

Faroe Islands to meet him, touched at 
Iceland, pushed for fourteen days through 
the ice of the Greenland sea, and reached 
Koldewey Island on August 13th. 

" On the next day he had an easy 
journey in the ice-free coastal waters to 
Cape Bismarck, and hi the inlet behind it 
he found a suitable place for the winter 
quarters of his ship. The little harbour 
was named Denmark Haven. In the late 
summer he sledged supplies northward to 
make provision-depots for the long jour- 
ney of the following spring, and he also 
surveyed the coasts both north and south 
of his winter camp as long as daylight 

" On March 28th last year the great 
sledge journey was begun. Mylius- 
Erichsen, Lieutenant Hageu, and the 
Greenlander Bronlund were to survey 
every mile of the coast until their explora- 
tions joined those of Peary at Indepen- 
dence Bay. lieutenant Koch, the artist 
Bertelsen , and the Greenlander Gabrielsen 
were to push north of Peary Channel to 
complete the exploration of the eastern 
edge of Peary Land, which Peary had 
explored as far south as Wyckoff Island. 

" Two detachments went along for 
weeks to carry food for the survey 
parties. As it left the ship the expedition 
numbered ten men, ten sledges, and 
eighty-six dogs." 

The lives of the explorer and of two 
of his companions were really sacrificed 
to his mistaken notion of the shape of 
the northern coast of Greenland. Instead 
of being practically a smooth curve, as he 
thought, it presents great peninsulas and 
inlets, so that his food-supply gave out 
before he could find his way back to his 
base. His body, together with the notes 
of his survey, were found later by a 
search party. To quote further : — 

' ' Hagen died on November 1 5th and 
Mylius-Erichsen ten days later, when 
only a few miles from the food cache. 
Bronlund reached it hi the moonlight, and 
when the spring search party this year 
found his body there it was evident that 
he 'had lived for several days after his 
arrival, but his strength was too far gone 
for recuperation. 

" With trembling hand he filled 
several pages in his notebook with a 
description of their wanderings and 
sufferings and told where his comrades 
had died. It was impossible to discover 
and bury their bodies, because the new- 
fallen snow was very deep. The last 
honours were paid to Bronlund, and he 
and his comrades now lie on the great 
island whose mapping they completed. 

" It was wonderfully fortunate that 
the bottle containing the survey sheets 
was found slung around the neck of 
Bronlund. Perhaps the great result of 
this exploration would never have been 
known if it were not for this fortunate 
circumstance. It is thought that Mylius- 
Erichsen probably did not venture to 
carry his diaries and collections over the 
inland ice with him, but left them in 
some safe depository at Denmark Fiord, 
where they may ultimately be recovered."

Education and the Principal 
Aim of Woman 

In one of the Philadelphia public schools 
is a girl whose forebears held that the 
principal aim of the life of a woman is 
marriage. This little girl is well up in 
most studies, except geography. The 
other day her teacher sent to her mother 
to see that the girl studied her lesson. 
The next day showed no improvement, 
and the teacher asked her whether she 
gave the note. 

" Yes, ma'am," was the reply. 

" And did your mother read it ? " 

" Yes, ma'am." 

" What did she say ? " 

" She said that she didn't know 
geography an' she got married, an' my 
aunt didn't know geography an' she got 
married, an' you know geography and 
you haven't got married." — Newsbook. 

An American Publisher's 

The publishing department of Paul 
Elder & Company will be returned in 
February from New York to the home 
office in San Francisco. Promptly after 
the earthquake of April, 1906, the firm 
erected an attractive building in San 
Francisco's new business centre on Van 
Ness Avenue, in which they continued 
their local and retail business, but found 
it necessary temporarily to remove their 
publishing interests. The rebuilding of 
the city, already so far advanced, the 
rapid resumption of normal business 
conditions and especially the renewal of 
adequate facilities for printing and pub- 
lishing have now enabled the firm again 
to concentrate all departments in their 
San 1' ran cisco quarters.

ing Department, Van Ness Avenue,

" Conquering the Arctic Ice " 

This book of Arctic exploration by 
Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen has an interest 
of its own, in so far as the author started 
on his voyage with no intention of 
reaching the North Pole. Persistent 
rumours had existed of undiscovered 
land lying to the north of Alaska and 
west of Bank's Land, and the stories of 
Eskimo natives who professed to have 
seen this new country derived some 
support from the theory that the drift 
and nature of the pack-ice in these 
regions could only be explained by 
assuming the existence of an undiscovered 
island or continent. Captain Mikkelsen 
has proved that no undiscovered land lies 
in the region of his expedition, and that 
the possibility of any further discovery in 
this direction is practically excluded. 
But a series of soundings along the north 
coast of Alaska have also enabled him to 
establish the important fact that the 


Continental Shelf lies close to that coast 
and does not indicate any connection 
with land further north. Plaxman Island 
became the headquarters of the expedi- 
tion and the starting-point of the sledge 
journey over the ice during the winter 
months. The ship, the Duchess of Bedford, 
became a wreck in the course of the 
whiter and was abandoned next spring, 
the crew being sent home by a passing 
whaler. While the ice was slowly wreck- 
ing his ship, Captain Mikkelsen and 
Mr. Leffingwell were occupied with the 
preparation and execution of an ice trip 
which will certainly rank as one of the 
most daring on record : during those 
months of 1907, the party was reported 
lost, as every newspaper reader will 
remember. After surmounting incredible 
difficulties. Captain Mikkelsen returned to 
find his crew living in a house constructed 
from the fittings of the Duchess of Bed- 
ford. He returned to civilisation along 
the Alaskan coast, via Nome and Yukon, 
a distance of 3,000 miles, the longest 
sledge journey ever made by an explorer. 

The book is an extraordinary record 
of wonderful tenacity and perseverance 

in face of difficulties apparently insur- 
mountable. Financial troubles, storms 
and blizzards, the dangers of the ice, all 
were alike encountered with unvarying 
patience and determination. A feature of 
the book is the remarkably full and 
accurate description of Eskimo life and 
manners. Captain Mikkelsen lived in the 
closest intimacy with this people, and 
those who are accustomed to regard them 
as savages of a very low type will be 
agreeably enlightened by a perusal of 
these pages, illustrated with a large 
number of very interesting photographs 
and other illustrations. 

The book has just been published in 
most attractive form, fully illustrated, by 
Mr William Heinemann, without whose 
assistance the expedition would not have 
been possible. 

Nature Study in Schools 

In the London County Council Schools 
of Arts and Crafts an exhibition was 
opened on January 8th which is intended 
to illustrate the subjects under discussion 
at the conference of London teachers. 
By far the most interesting exhibits are 
those which relate to open-air school 
work. History rambles in London are also 
illustrated. Another section deals with 
educational excursions. It will be a 
surprise to many people to learn that 
parties of boys, numbering as many as 
fifty, have made excursions of a week's 
duration to places so far away as the 
Welsh border and the Isle of Wight. 
These boys came from the very poorest 
elementary schools. It is due to the 
headmasters of the schools, working in 
some cases in conjunction with the 
Children's Hobday Fund, that the neces- 
sary money has been obtained for these 
excursions. Hitherto they have not been 
officially recognised, and have only taken 
place in the Easter holidays. Now, 
however, there is a clause in the code 
permitting a week's absence from school 
for the purpose of such excursions, and it 
is hoped this will give a fillip to the 

Bacon's Excelsior Maps 

Messrs. G. W. Bacon & Co., Ltd., are 
now issuing a new series of their well- 
known Excelsior Wall Maps. The new 
series is coloured geographically instead 
of politically. The heights of land are 
shown by different shades of green and 
brown, and the depths of water by 
varying shades of blue. The same bold 
outlines and lettering as in the original 
series are retained throughout. 

The contours have been prepared 
' with the greatest care from Governmental 
I and other surveys, and these maps will 
certainly rank as among the most popular. 
1 useful and satisfactory aids for carrying 
out modern ideas of teaching geography. 

The maps now ready are Europe, Asia, 
Africa, North America, Australia and the 
British Isles. The size is about 5 feet by 
4 feet. 

A section of the map and full cata- 
logues of other teaching aids for geo- 
graphy will be sent free on application 
to G. W. Bacon & Co., Ltd., 127, Strand.

Chapman & Hall's Annual 
Staff Dinner 

A MOST enjoyable evening was spent by 
the staff of Chapman & Hall at the 
Horse Shoe Hotel, Tottenham Court 
Road, on January 5th. Dinner was 
served at 7 o'clock, after which a most 
excellent and varied programme of music 
and recitals was proceeded with. Mr. 
Arthur Waugh, managing director of the 
company, presided. Those present were 
Messrs. G. Etheridge, W. B. Akerman, 
J. C. Pilcher, W, B. Francis, B. W. Matz, 
Frank Speaight, Roland Truslove, A. 
Dykes Spicer, J. G. Bain, Harold Bayley, 
W. J. Roberts, A. J. Gibbons, E. F. 
Gibbons, G. H. Page, Edmund Roberts, 
A. E. Dunnett, F. J. Evans, H. Worrell, 
W. Collins, G. 0. Thomas, H. B. Moody, 
and W. L. Jones. There is no doubt that 
the spirit of Dickens has entered into 
every member of the firm, and the few 
friends who were present seemed also 
to have caught the infectious geniality. 

After the usual loyal toasts, Mr. 
Arthur Waugh proposed the toast of the 
evening — " Prosperity to the Firm of 
Chapman & Hall." He said that there j 
was such a good feeling of fellowship in 
Henrietta Street that the newest recruit 
was always made at home, but that when 
he compared his own seven years of 
service with the long careers of many of 
those whom he saw around him that 
evening he could not but feel humble. 
With many topical and personal refer- 
ences Mr. Waugh then recounted the 
personnel of the firm since the year 1 87 1 , 
when the oldest present member of the 
staff joined the office, and ended by 
assuring those present that it was upon 
such records of long and faithful service 
that the prosperity of the firm had 
depended in the past and would assuredly 
depend in the future. There were said to 
be employers of labour in the City of 
London to-day who boasted that they 
could get out of a man all the good of 
which he was capable in the course of a 
couple of years, and that then the man 
was useless. But the history of labour, 
like the record of Rehoboam of old, went 
to prove that one incalculable gift which 
youth could never bring was the gift of 
experience, and at Henrietta Street they 
had learnt, while taking each man's 
censure and reserving their judgment, 
to rely as much upon the wise experience 
of the old as upon the eager impulses of 
youth. Herein, he believed, lay the secret 
of the firm's continued prosperity and of 
the cheerful faces among which it was his 
privilege to work from day to day. 

There were only two other toasts on 
the list — that of " The Chairman " and 
that of " The Guests." Mr. W. B. Aker- 
man, who, although not by any means 
the doyen of the staff, has nevertheless 
represented the firm as country traveller 
for twenty-eight years, proposed the 
former. In the course of his remarks he 
alluded to the long list of notable names 
in literature connected with the firm 
since its formation, including such names 
as John Forster, George Henry Lewes, 
John Morley (now Viscount Morley), 
Mr. George Meredith, Anthony Trollope, 
and Mr. W. L- Courtney. With such a 
glorious past, and from what they had 

heard from the chairman that night, he 
felt that the outlook in the future with 
Mr. Arthur Waugh at the helm indicated 
that the traditions of the great house 
were likely to be carried on in the future. 
Mr. B. W. Matz proposed " The Guests." 

During the evening Mr. Arthur Waugh 
recited a poem written in honour of the 
occasion,- from which we quote the 
following verses : — 


'Tis more than seventy years ago that there 

was wont to stand 
A humble little bookshop at 186 the Strand : 
And there one rain-swept winter night a 

young man might be seen 
Enquiring if they'd got the new Old Monthly 


The man behind the counter very quickly 

fetched it down. 
The boy, no doubt, had thought it cheap at 

three times half-a-crown : 
For as he turned it, eager as a miser in the 


That evening, the first time in life, he saw 

himself in print ! 
He tucked it 'neath his jacket, and strode 

out into the sleet, 
And his heart was beating louder than the 

traffic in the street. 
A simple, common incident ! Yet one to 

touch us all, 
For the lad who bought wag Dickens, and 

the man who sold was Hall. 


Two years went by, and once again that 

casual couple met, 
On a night that no one present here is likely 

to forget. 

The tables now were turned : it was the 
bookshop's turn to call — 

And the man who sold was Dickens, and the 
man who bought was Hall ! 

Long time they sat and chatted over Sey- 
mour's sporting scheme, 

Till Mr. Pickwick rose to life, like Ilion from 
a dream ; 

Till Mr. Pickwick, wreathed in smiles, awoke 

the world to laughter, 
And Dickens and his publishers were one for 

ever after. 

Mr. Frank Speaight, the famous 
Dickens reciter, who was one of the 
guests of the evening, entertained the 
company with three recitals, the last of 
which, his own version of " Casabianca," 
caused such fits of laughter as to make 
one feel a little anxious about the sides of 
his audience. 

During the rest of the evening songs 
were given by Messrs. H. T. Worrell, 
W. B. Francis, H. B. Moody, A. E. 
Dunnett, A. Dykes Spicer, F. J. Evans, 
E. F. Gibbons, Roland Truslove, W. L. 
Jones and B. W. Matz, and a right good 
festive occasion was brought to a close 
with " Auld Dang Syne." 

The following " howlers " by school- 
boys are given in the new number of

Great Work of the School 

How little the world knows of those who 
are doing its most arduous and often its 
most important work ! In education, for 
example. The headmasters of the public 
schools are honoured and well known. 
The assistant-masters, too, have their 
place in the social world. But what of 
the men who are charged with the far 
more difficult and equally important 
task of educating the masses ? Why is 
their work not better known and more 
generously recognised ? 

At the King's Hall, Holborn. on 
January 7th, commenced a conference of 
London teachers, mostly drawn from 
elementary schools. Here one could see 
what manner of men and women they are 
who are helping to shape the future of 
England by moulding the minds of the 
generation which will follow us. It was 
impossible not to be struck by their 
enthusiasm, their interest in their pro- 
fession, their sanity, their desire to learn. 

There are thousands of men doing 
well to-day who will tell you that they 
owe a very great deal to their teachers in 
elementary schools. Not only for what 
they were taught, but for the influences 
brought to bear upon them in their 
impressionable years, for the stimulus 
communicated to them by active minds, 
for the healthy spirit of sportsmanship 
and honour cultivated both in work hours 
and at play. 


As for the influence which a woman 
teacher can and often does exercise over 
her girls, it is incalculable. Only those 
Who know intimately the conditions of 
life in the under-world of cities can even 
faintly realise the value of the example 
of a sensible, kind-hearted, pure-minded 
girl among the children of the slums. It 
opens out to them an ideal of life they 
have never dreamed of. It keeps them 
straight and decent. It shows them which 
is the " right turning," and helps them to 
take it when the moment for choosing 


There was a discussion on " Open-air 
Education." which includes both nature- 
study and schools out of doors - for 
defective or delicate children. Instead of 
denouncing it as a fad all the most 
intelligent headmasters and teachers have 
taken it up with interest and enthusiasm. 

They told how they took children out 
to study animal and plant life, to find 
fossils and shells. They told of long, 
wonderful days in the country. They 
explained how " school journeys " could 
be undertaken, a whole batch of children 
being carried off to some country place 
for a week or a fortnight in term time to 
have their interests stimulated and their 
minds enlarged. 


Miss Beer gave a particularly interest- 
ing account of a garden school for children 
who were not strong enough to attend an 
ordinary centre. They were taught the 
progress of civilisation by playing at cave- 
dwellers, then being Druids ; afterwards 

choosing a chief for convenience and 
better protection. Geography was im- 
parted by making rivers and lakes and 
continents and seas on the garden path ; 
arithmetic by pulling rhubarb and pick- 
ing gooseberries ; and domestic economy 
by taking charge of the caretaker's baby 
and learning that pork, pease-pudding 
and pickles were not a suitable diet for 
infants of tender years. 

No wonder Dr. Rose, assistant educa- 
tional adviser to the London County 
Council, would like to see all children 
educated partly on these lines. — The

Hints for Copying and 
Postal Clerks 

WHEN folding letters with enclosures it 
is an excellent plan to pin all together, 
or so to fold them that the recipient 
cannot take one out without taking all. 
Everybody has had experience of the 
necessity for searching through the waste 
j paper basket, or the file of old envelopes, 
I for the missing paper money in some 
i form or other, or other enclosure which 
has been overlooked, because it was " left 
in the envelope." 

Cheques, drafts, postal and money 
orders ought to be folded so that it is 
impossible to cut through them in 
opening the mail with a knife or envelope 
opener. Some twenty years ago or so 
an American brought out a patent 
clipper for opening envelopes. You put 
the envelope under a sort of guillotine, 
gave a handle on top a sharp blow with 
your fist, and the whole of the top edge of 
the envelope was cut off. It was a very 
ingenious attempt to make money by 
saving time, but in practice you found 
that you cut a strip out of so many 
cheques, drafts, &c. that the money 
made was lost in sticking it together 

Cheaper Books for the Blind 

What is to be known as the New York 
system of " point " reading for the blind 
has been perfected by William B. Wait, 
Principal of the New York Institute for 
the Blind, and B. B. Huntoon, the 
Superintendent of the American Printing 
House for the Blind, at Louisville. By 
cheapening the cost of printing such 
literature the system is expected to 
permit many blind persons to purchase 
: reading matter. The Sunday-school 
lessons in the new " point " system for 
the blind will be sent to press in a week, 
and it is expected that the entire system 
of religious instruction for the eighty 
thousand blind persons in the United 
vStates will undergo marked changes. 
Hitherto, because of the raised surfaces, 
only one side of the paper could be used, 
making the cost of a book or paper for 
a blind reader a large item. The New 
York system is so arranged that both 
sides of the paper can be used. The 
embossing on one side of the page is 
between the lines of the embossing on the 
other. The cost of production will be 
reduced by fully 40 per cent. — New York

Highly Trained 
Young Women Fretting 
Their Hearts Out 

THERE were several sectional meetings in 
the afternoon of January Sth at the 
Technological Institute in connection 
With the Conference of Teachers at 
Manchester. Dealing with the question 
of teachers (Sir Henry F. Hibbert pre- 
siding), Miss S. J. Hale (principal of the 
Lodge Hill Training College, Liverpool) 
said that more teachers were n6w being 
trained than could find employment, and 
thus money, time, and brain were being 
spent uuprofitably. Mr. Ernest Gray 
urged that local authorities should decline 
to make further provision for the training 
of teachers until the policy of the Board 
of Education was clearly defined. There 
were, he said, " highly trained young 
women fretting their hearts out at home, 
a burden on their parents, literally 
hundreds of pounds having been spent On 
their training. The educational needs of 
the schools cried aloud for more certificated 
teachers, and the Board of Education 
stood idly by. an imperfectly informed 
President telling the House of Commons : 
' I am not aware that they are experienc- 
ing unusual difficulties in obtaining 
appointments. In fact, such evidence as 
the Board possesses indicates that the 
demand for teachers is still in excess of 
the supply.' The intelligence department 
of the Board of Education was as defective 
as that of the Army at the outbreak of 
the South African War."

Education in China 

UNTH, to-day we have heard little of the 
scheme for founding a University on 
Western lines in China since Lord William 
Cecil expounded his views on the subject 
four or five months ago. The plan, which 
had active support at Oxford and Cam- 
bridge, was to organise an educational 
centre or University independent of any 
missionary body, yet in sympathy with 
their work. It was felt on the one hand 
that there were many who, while un- 
willing to subscribe to existing missionary 
societies, would not be adverse to helping 
forward Western education in China, and 
on the other that many missionary 
bodies would be glad to be relieved of the 
expense of providing purely secular 
education and the costly apparatus that 
modern scientific study requires. The 
matter is one of great difficulty, as the 
promoters of the scheme recognised. It is 
only recently that the real meaning of 
education has been understood in China ; 
the yoimg men there learned to read and 
write simply because the State examina- 
tions demanded it, and the idea of 
educating a man morally, physically and 
intellectually to make him a good citizen 
was never entertained. That the China- 
man now frequently sends his sons to 
school mainly for the sake of education is 
one of the most noticeable features in 
modern China, and one that makes this 
period of great danger. Western ideas 
have taken a firm root in China, and it 
has become incumbent upon the West to 
provide the leaders of China with adequate 
mental equipment that, in Lord William 
Cecil's words, the country's thought may 
be reconstructed in harmony with modern 
knowledge. We believe that the joint 
British and American scheme will be 
warmly received, for the number of 
young Chinese who are being sent to the 
American universities shows that univer- 
sity education is keenly sought for. — 
Times of India, December 21st, 1908. 

The Church Militant 

IT is quite refreshing to see a reviewed 
author taking things in the following 
style — not lying down by any means. 
The Times reviewer seems to have quite 
stroked the Rev. P. H. Ditchfield the 
wrong way, and in a reply, published we 
are glad to see in the same paper, he 
says : — 

" I cannot allow your reviewer to ride 
off on the high horse saying, ' It is as 
useless to argue with those who impute 
the dissolution of monasteries to Henry's 
greed as with those who impute the 
French Revolution to Mirabeau's ambi- 
tion or Robespierre's vanity.' I have no 
intention of arguing the matter with him, 
or of discussing the causes which led to 
the destruction of monasteries in Eng- 
land. It is well known that there were 
contributory causes besides the greed of 
Henry ; but most authorities are agreed 
that the latter was the one supreme 
overwhelming cause without which the 
dissolution would have been postponed 
for many years. But that is not the 
question. Your reviewer insults me with 
impertinent observations because I have 
expressed the same views which are held 
by Abbot Gasquet, Canon Overton, 

Lingard, Fuller, and many other histor- 
ians. Do the conclusions of these writers 
savour rather of a childish history than 
' of a rational history for grown-up 
people ' ? As I read history I believe that 
the conclusions of these and other eminent 
historians are right ; if they are proved 
to be wrong, I err hi good company, and 
ought not to be exposed to the virulent 
abuse of this extraordinary reviewer." 

The Genius of Shakespeare 
and Dickens 

In a long and interesting review in The 
Times of " The vShakespeare Problem 
Restated," by G. G. Greenwood, M.P. 
(Lane), and " William Shakespeare : 
Player, Playmaker and Poet," a reply to 

; Mr. George Greenwood, M.P., by H. C. 
Beeching, D.Litt., Canon of Westminster 

I (Smith, Elder), the reviewer says : — 

" ' The Shakespeare Problem Re- 
stated ' is not, we submit, a title pre- 
eminently suggestive of explosive quality 
in a book. The work in question has, at 
any rate, been reposing upon our shelves 
for a considerable time without exhibiting 
signs of latent dynamic force : and it was 
not until we caught sight of Canon 
Beeching handling the book in question 
with what seemed an exaggerated amount 
of precaution, and throwing it into a 
water tank before proceeding to a 
careful examination of its contents, that 
our attention was forcibly directed to 
the subject. Having assured ourselves 
now that the pedestal of the national 
poet is in no immediate danger of levita- 
tion, it may not perhaps be unprofitable 
to try to discover what the bearing and 
application of the Shakespeare Problem 
may conceivably be. 

" Great as the advance of compara- 
tive psychology has been hi quite recent 
years, the problem of supreme genius is 
hardly one of those to which we can 
expect an even proximate solution in the 
near future. At what stages or under 
what conditions of national growth 
supremely great men are most likely to 
be produced is, to say the least, pro- 
blematical. Among all the attempts that 
have been made to explain insurgent 
greatness, Shakespeare's own — namely, 
that it is probably due to some latent 
strain of blue blood or aristocratic 
lineage — has proved the least adequate, 
the least satisfying. It may be a reproach 
to the science of eugenics, but it is the 
manifest truth to say that a great poet 
is far less likely to prove the son of a 
Lord Keeper than the son of the smallest 
yeoman. The large majority of our 
greatest writers have, in fact, emerged 
from the ranks of the lower middle class, 
to which there is no doubt that Shake- 
speare himself belonged. That many or 
most of them have emerged from milieus 
the most unlikely is matter of common 
knowledge to everyone except the man 
who happens to be holding a brief on 
the other side. The case of one of the 
greatest names after Shakespeare also 
points to the same conclusion. When 
asked by one of those wiseacres who are 
convinced that in order to write good 
English a man must be taught to write 
bad Latin, where his son was edn ted, 
Mr. John Dickens replied with con- 

siderable aplomb that his son — er — well, 
his son — er — might be almost said, in a 
sense, to have educated himself. The 
street, the warehouse, Mr. Creakle, an 
attorney's office, the reporters' gallery, 
and post-chaise — such was the education 
that equipped a young man of twenty- 
four to preside at the banquet of litera- 
ture at an unprecedented age, to make 
the best speeches in London, to go into 
the best society, to set the table hi a 
roar, to lead every company in which he 
mixed, to travel, acquire French and 
Italian with ease, and write the most 
animated letters known to the modern 

" At every turn we encounter this 
same phenomenon of the alchemy of 
genius turning sand into gold. That 
vShakespeare's should be regarded as a 
singular case, transcending the common 
law of genius, is due, we believe, in large 
measure, to the extravagance of vShake- 
speare's eulogists."

The Mountains of the Moon 

When Lhasa had been visited, Ruwenzori 
remained — save for the gorges of the 
Brahmaputra — the only great geogra- 
phical mystery unveiled. Happily the 
unveiling has not killed the romance, for 
the truth is stranger than any forecast. 
If the Mountains of the Moon are lower 
than we had believed, they are far more 
wonderful. Here you have a range almost 
on the Equator, rising not from an 
upland, like Kilimanjaro, but from the 
" Albertine Depression," which is 600 or 
700 feet below the average level of 
Uganda ; a range of which the highest 
peaks are a thousand feet liigher than 
Mont Blanc, which is draped most days 
of the year in mist, and accessible from 
the plains only by deep-cut glens choked 
with strange trees and flowers. The 
altitude would in any case give every 
stage of climate from torrid to arctic, 
but the position on the Line adds some- 
thing exotic even to familiar mountain 
sights, draping a glacier moraine with a 
tangle of monstrous growths, and swell- 
ing the homely Alpine flora into portents. 
The freakish spirit in Nature has been let 
loose, and she has set snowfields and rock 
aretes in the heart of a giant hothouse. —

Blackwood's Magazi ne Jor ( January, 1909.

English and American 
Libraries Compared 

In reply to certain disparaging comments 
on the management of European libraries 
which have appeared in the American 
Press, the Library World for January, 
1909, has published a pointed rejoinder, 
in which it is shown that the accom- 
plishment of the American Municipal 
Libraries is very feeble compared with 
the work of European Libraries, while 
the cost is exceedingly extravagant. 
The British ratepayer, who occasionally 
growls at the id. rate levied for the 
Public Library, will be comforted to 
know that in three large American 
Libraries it requires an expenditure of 
£138,000 and a staff of 624 to circulate 
in one year 3,775,000 volumes. Three 
British Libraries, ranking hi size with the 
American ones, spend £42,000, with a 
staff of 268, in circulating 4.383.000 
volumes. Every book circulated in 
these American Libraries costs nd., as 
against 2^d. in British Libraries. Again, 
the expenditure per head of the popula- 
tion is 2s. 2d. in Ann m an towns, and 
Only 8d. in the English ones. Other 
extraordinary examples are cited to show 
that there is no ground for the American 
claims 'to any kind of superiority in 
Library work, unless it be extravagant 
expenditure and enormous staffs. 

One leading American Library, in the 
Central building, employs 90 persons to 
issue 287,165 volumes per annum, at a 
cost estimated to be £6,000. The Cen- 
tral Library of an English town employs 
9 persons to circulate 322. Soo volumes at 
a cost of £405. It will thus be seen that 

in proportion to expenditure the work 
of British Libraries is infinitely superior, 
more economical, and better appre- 
ciated by the public than anything the 
American Libraries can show. 

The Library World editorial ends with 
the following humorous and pointed 
anecdote : — 

" A farmer of the old-fashioned 
school was being chaffed about the 
poverty-stricken look of one of his

did. Miss Dickens said that when she 
went to gatherings of that sort she found 
that everybody knew so much more 
about her grandfather's books and about 
her grandfather himself than she did, 
that the best thing she could do was to 
hold her tongue. There was one thing 
that always struck her when she saw 
kind feeling exhibited, and that was how 
unjust was the reproach which was so 
often brought against what was called the 
public — the reproach of fickleness. She 
thought that when it was said the public 
was fickle, it was really meant that the 
public was very generous and trusting. 
The public continually thought that it 
had found the real thing and expressed 
itself to that effect ; then by-and-by it 
found that it had not, and it looked for 
something else. That was not fickleness, 
but simply bringing somebody or some- 
thing to the proof and finding it wanting. 
But when the much maligned public 
did find tire real thing, it stuck to it ; 
there was no doubt about that. — From

The Publishers' Circular 


Hope for Parents 

By Frank Eijas 

The following circular has just come to 
hand : — 

For parents alarmed at the prospect 
of their sons abandoning their training 
for remunerative professions in order to 
adopt the uncertain life of literature, there 
is now a word of hope. To such parents 
at one time only one course seemed open, 
namely, to make the best of things : 
possibly to send the young man to some 
school of journalism. 

To-day, however, all that is changed. 
Parents need not submit. Their children 
will do that, and will do it quite willingly. 
Further, the parent need not enroll his son 
as a member of any school. He will 
merely send him to the 

Institute for the Discouragement of 
Incipient Genius 

The Proprietors of this Institution 
realise that what is wanted to-day is not 
a school to teach people to write, but a 
school to teach them not to write. 
Parents will doubtless ask how this end is 
attained. The explanation is simple. 
The one certain way to encourage a young 
writer to continue is for editors to accept 
his work. But editors do not always 
consider the parents' point of view. 
They incline to use work without en- 
quiring of the author whether his mother 
is aware of his absence. The Proprietors 
of the Institute saw therefore, that if the 
editor was to be prevented from accepting 
the author's work, the latter must be 
made to do work so bad as to be im- 
possible of acceptance. The Institute 
is the result. 

We guarantee that no young man, 
however naturally talented, and however 
successful with his first contributions, will 
ever, after the first week with us, succeed 
in getting a single line of his work 
published in any reputable paper in the 
kingdom. We care not if he is a Carlyle 
or a Browning. Det him come into our 
hands, and 

His Career is Over. 

Every editor will mark him down for 
ever, and even if later in life he tries to 
write again, he will be too notorious to be 

Our course includes — Instruction in 
Bad Grammar, False Quantities, Mis- 
spelling, Unsound Syntax, Blank verse 
Prose, together with careful training in 
Dulness, Vapidity, Discursiveness, the 
use of the elench, &c. 

Instruction in the Use of the Split 
Infinite is Charged for Extra 

Weekly classes are held too, for in- 
struction in the employment of ' ' Different 
to," &c. 

That our course is successful need 
hardly be said. During last week alone 
our pupils received 931 rejection forms, 
some of them from 

The Most Unimportant Papers . 

Three pupils were even refused the 
use of the advertisement columns of a 
village weekly. Yet one of the three 
when he came to us, showed the highest 

It may be said, " But will pupils 
rebel ? " 

That is for the parent to decide. 
But if once the latter exerts enough 
authority to get his son within our walls, 
we undertake that he will go through our 
course. Of how we compel his obedience 
we need not say much, except to remark 
that in extreme cases, we read him 
specimens of the work done by some of our 
graduates on leaving. In order to get us 
to stop he naturally undertakes to write 
our exercise, which is only slightly worse 
than the day before. But each step he 
thus takes is further from literature and 
nearer the desire of his parent, and rarely, 
when the course is completed, has the 
pupil further desire to write. When 
offered a position in trade or profession 
he gladly accepts. But read one of 
to-day's testimonials : — 

Dear Sir, — My son wanted to be a 
poet. I had desired him to join me in 
jam making. So successful was your 
treatment, however, that not only has he 
been manufacturing jam for the past year, 
but he has added a sausage plant to our 
premises. — Yours faithfully. 

The British Empire 
(and Japan) 

By W. Bisiker, F.R.G.S. 

The Geographical Publishing Company, 
of Chichester Rents, Chancery Dane, send 
us "The British Empire (and Japan)," 
an excellent modern Atlas, having 213 
maps and 272 illustrations, numerous 
tables and diagrams, with text concerning 
commercial products, statistics, histories, 
features, resources, commerce, industries, 
scenery, and the physical and economic 
conditions of the world. An admirable 
work suitable for the youngest and even 
the most advanced of scholars, and one 
in which the conventional lines of the 
atlases that have been in vogue for the 
last two or three generations have not 
been followed. An attempt has been 
made — very successfully, we think — to 
make the maps interesting in themselves, 
and to bring out clearly the chief points 
and features. It is certainly a wonderful 
production for 21s., in many respects the 
best of its kind. 

Whitaker's Almanack 

No one who is interested in education or 
commerce or politics or anything else 
can well afford to be without that won- 
derful work, Whitaker's Almanack, which 
improves with the years. It is a perfect 
" Who's Who " in a great many walks of 
life — e.g., you want to know who repre- 
sents Japan here or who represents us hi 
Japan, or any other country civilised 
enough to have a representative, Whita- 
ker tells you in '■' half a jiffey," whatever 
portion of time that may be. The light 
of the beautiful Index to Whitaker's is 
hid under a bushel of small type : how- 
ever, magnifying glasses are very cheap. 

Whitaker's Peerage, Baronetage, 
Knightage, and Companionage for 1909 

is also ready to answer almost any 
possible inquiries, and is, like the Al- 
manack, a beautiful bit of printing. 

SchooUBooks and Politics 

[The following extracts arc from a very 
interesting letter in last week's 
Spectator. — Ed. P.Q.] 

Sir, — One of the wisest teacher.-,, William 
Cory of Eton, recommended a man who 
was to follow him in his work to write a 
letter if he felt aggrieved, and to burn it 
next morning. The first stage in this two- 
fold process relieved the feelings, the 
second prevented them from harming the 
writer or any one else. The schoolmaster 
usually is inarticulate. — the ordinary 
schoolmaster I mean : for unmuzzled 
Head-Masters have a yearly fling. We 
ordinary men, however, have our feelings 
and opinions, and many of us could, and 
we would, contribute a good deal of 
valuable information on the question of 
education. As I have just finished a 
period of work that has lasted for fourteen 
full weeks with never an evening off or a 
week-end, I feel free to kick my heels, and 
I should like in so doing to kick 
" Parent's " as well (see Spectator, Decem- 
ber 26th 1908). 

Into his attack upon grammar and 
its terminology I need not follow him. 
But the sting of " Parent's " letter is 
in its latter part — the introduction of 
politics. And yet only a few days ago a 
pupil of mine volunteered the remark to 
me that it was a pity that politics were 
not taught ! My excellent " Parent," 
some boys come from Tariff Reform 
homes, some from Free Trade homes. At 
home some hear Home Rule, others 
Unionism. Some are little Englanders, 
others Imperialists : and so on. No book 
was ever written that would suit every 
boy {and his parents) in a division. The 
important thing is that there should be 
some politics hi every book, and the more 
so in these days of pleasure on the eve of 
catastrophe. The master who deals with 
" dead languages," that embody living 
ideas, cannot help mentioning that sea 
power is the same whether it defends the 
food* of Athens, Rome, or England : that 
the nation that will not fight will lose its 
independence, whether it be Egypt or 
Britain. As long as the boy will think, 
and, still better, discuss his doubts or 
convictions at home, the teacher feels 
that he has helped to make a citizen, 
and that is not always the product of 
public school and home. 

Well, there, Sir, is my letter ; and 
now you may burn it. — I am. Sir, &c, 

[*We opened our ever-welcome Spectator 
after writing the articles on " Education 
in History " hi the P.C. this week, and

Kipling's School Slang 
Philologically Considered 

A German or Swedish philologist from 
Upsala with the name of Fredrik Schmidt 
has lately written " a study in English 
sehool-hfe and schoolboy slang, as repre- 
sented in Kipling's ' Stalky and Co.' " ; 
and his results are certainly astonish- 
ing. The German philologist pursues 
with "impenetrable seriousness" the 
subtleties of English schoolboy humour 
through thirty-five closely printed pages 
of the Englische Studien. He begins, says 
a writer in The Academy, whose summary 
we quote, " with an elaborate scheme of 
contents, and after a short introduction 
plunges into the ' phonology,' the ' inflec- 
tions,' and the ' word-formations ' of 

One chapter deals with voeabulary 
and style, in which, it is said, "Mr. 
Schmidt surpasses himself in his treat- 
ment of transferred appellations of human 
beings." Some specimens follow : — 

" Terms of human beings which have 
developed a generalised sense from a 
primary personal one. 

" Dutchman denotes at first nationa- 
lity and then means ' a contemptible, 
stupid person,' a sense due to the rivalry 
between the English and the Dutch — e.g., 
in the seventeenth century (cf. Reinius, 
p. 162). Thus 'I'm a Dutchman ' = ' a 
worthless fellow,' is a usual way of 
emphasising an assertion. To increase the 
effect of humour Beetle says : ' If he 
don't think the house is putrid with it 
(money-lending), I'm several Dutchmen, 
that's all ' (in). 

" A similar effect is produced by the 
expression : ' If King can make anything 
out of this, I'm a blue-eyed squatteroo ' 

" The name of an author becomes the 
name of the book written by him. Thus : 
'You'd better carry my Jorrocks ' (5). 
Jorrock was a great zoological scholar. 

" The whole article would bear quota- 
tion ; it is full of this kind of portentous 
humour staggering under the guise of 
gravity. Could anything be richer than 
this : ' An abstract substantive becomes 
a concrete substantive with an appellative 
sense. Corridor-caution = one who excites 
alarm or astonishment in the corridor ' ? 
The value of these philological notes to 
German scholars must be immense. 

" The next section is concerned with 
school-work and organisation, discipline, 
dress, pastimes, sport, and games. Notes 
on examinations and discipline include a 
reference to Mr. Clutton Brock's ' Eton at 
the Present Day ' for the procedure at a 
' flogging ' ; and the philologist declares 
that ' bag is a word for wide trousers, and 
is then used as a verb, meaning " drop 
stealthily in one's trousers," "steal," 
" take." ' Among pastimes, sport, and 
games, ' besides the usual " spree," 
" frolic," ' there are lark, bend, jamboree, 
gloat, football, cricket, golf (a cleek is 
' a club bent at right angles in order to 
hit the golf-ball '), fives, and marbles. 
The terms for 'inebriated,' 'be afraid.' 
and ' run away ' receive a section to 
themselves, followed by ' terms expressing 
various feelings and acts of enmity and 
friendship,' which cover such phrases and 
words as ' get beans,' ' had him on 

toast,' ' jaw,' ' hector,' ' jape,' ' chivy,' 
' scrag ' ; but Mr. Schmidt can find only 
one phrase of friendship, ' to freeze on to.' 

" Some difficulty was encountered 
over the word ' frabjous ' ; the commen- 
tator, not finding it in any dictionary, 
suggested that it ' may be a comical 
corruption of fabulous,' but added in a 
footnote, ' As I have been told later on, 
the word frabjous is to be found in some 
book written by Lewis Carroll.' It is to 
be hoped that Mr. Schmidt may soon 
turn his attention to the philological 
curiosities of ' 'Twas brillig/ 

' ' A hobbledehoy is ' a youth approach- 
ing manhood ' ; a piffler is ' a man with 
a moral end in view, but nothing to back 
it, but a habit of talking sentimental 
rubbish' (see 'Cent. Diet.'), ex., 'Don't 
jaw, you fat piffler.' And Mr. Sclnnidt 
perpetuates the interpretation of ' damn ' 
as the ' Indian dam, an ancient copper 
com.' He finds no difficulty in tracing 
much of Mr. Kipling's phraseology to a 
Biblical source. 

" Mr. Schmidt has detected a ' foreign 
influence ' in much of the schoolboy talk, 
such as in the use of 'cave,' ' twiggez- 
vous ' ; and he notes that a French 
influence can be ' traced ' in such phrases 
as ' I'm not smokin' aujourd'-hui, parce 
que je jolly well pense that we'll be 
suivi.' " 

"The Cleansing of a City" 


Messrs. Greeting and Co., Ltd., have 
just published, at the price of is. net, a 
work entitled " The Cleansing of a 
City." We should be happy to subscribe 
five guineas to a fund for defraying the 
cost of sending a copy to every Member 
of both Houses of Parliament and to 
every school teacher. There surely can 
be no general knowledge by Parliament 
of many of the facts or alleged facts de- 
scribed in this work — e.g.. that since the 
German Emperor cleansed Berlin and the 
Municipal authorities swept out Brussels, 
London contains more foreign bullies 
"dependent for existence" on [ the 
" ownership and exploitation of women " 
than any city " since the fall of the 
Roman Empire." It is said that these 
foreign panderers have formed a syndicate 
for importing foreign women and decoying 
and ruining our women and girls, and for 
fighting our police hi the Courts. There 
are thousands of these foreign devils and 
blackmailers now at work in London. 
Mr. Cxeorge R. Sims deserves the thanks 
of all for the courage with which he has 
exposed this most dangerous stream of 
foreign vice, diverted into England, and 
not confined to London, because it was 
too foul even for Berlin and Brussels. 
There is plenty of native vice, and 
evervbodv must'agree that this syndicate 
of foreign bullies and every member of 
it ought to be expelled. England ought 
to be made too hot for them. It is too 
absurd and incongruous for our British 
Government to shake its head and 
solemnly lecture the Belgian Government 
on the atrocities and immoralities 011 the 
Congo when it winks at these atrocities 
and' hmnoralities on the Thames. Re- 
cently in two parishes of Soho there were

over a thousand of these foreign bullies, 
and the infection is spreading to the 
suburbs and to other towns. 

Surely it is for the legislative assembly, 
as Bishop Welldon points out, to deal 
with this foreign cancer. 

Other matters dealt with in this ugly 
little volume are : — " Unclean Fiction," 
by Dr. Barry, " Noxious Literature," by 
Dr. Horton, " Cheap and Nasty Journals," 
by the Editor of the book, " The Moral 
Training of Youth," &c. For these the 
hope is in education rather than legisla- 
tion, and it is for that reason we wish to 
see this book hi the hands of every school 
teacher in the country. 

Little Niggers and AngIo= 
Saxon Kings 

Speaking at a meeting of the Historical 
Association, held at University College, 
Gower Street, on January 8th, Mr. 
Sidney Webb, London County Council, 
said that history was the greatest element 
in the teaching of what they called 
culture, and no man or woman could 
arrive at a state of culture without a 
knowledge of history in its widest sense. 
History freed men from the bondage of 
the present and the domination of self. 

Dealing with the way in which history 
was taught, Mr. Webb said that when 
years ago he was a clerk at the Colonial 
Office, he foimd that little black boys 
sitting on a form in Sierra Leone were 
beginning their study of history by learn- 
ing the names of the Anglo-Saxon kings. 
(Laughter.) He tried to alter this, and 
one of his ideas was to teach them the 
time of day by the clock. That, however, 
was knocked on the head, for lie was 
informed that there was only one clock 
in Sierra Leone, and that was at Govern- 
ment House. (Laughter.) He then 
thought of writing a history of the 
world from the point of view of Sierra 
Leone. (Laughter.) This was where the 
teaching of history fell short. It did not 
treat the subject from the point of view 
of those who were being taught, * | -\ 


Personally, he had learnt most of his 
history through examinations, and he 
thought the examiners were more wise 
when they asked the student his views 
on feudalism than when they asked him 
to name the date of certain events, for 
dates alone were not history. Of all the 
condemnations which would be passed 
upon Oxford and Cambridge, the most 
severe would be in consequence of their 
exclusion of the history of the Nineteenth 
Century from their historical course.

The Edinburgh School Atlas 

Messrs. W. & A. K. Johnston (Loudon 
and Edinburgh) have just published an 
entirely new atlas for schools. The 
plates from winch this atlas is printed 
are entirely new, the black and hills 
having been specially engraved on separ- 
ate copper plates by the very latest 
photo-mechanical process in Messrs. 
Johnston's studio at Edina works. The 
atlas is specially adapted to the teaching 
requirements of the present day, showing 
as it does the physical features by varying 
shades of brown, political boundaries by 
hard red lines, and the depths of the sea 
by different shades of blue. In order not 
to overcrowd the maps, only the names 
of the most important places have been 
inserted, but the list of names (6,000), of 
which the latitude and longitude are 
given, is very complete. The location of 
places by this means is a very useful

Musical Copyright and 
Perforated Rolls 

The important decision made at Bow- 
Street a few months ago, in which it was 
held that perforated roll was not a copy 
of a musical work, and is not, therefore, 
an infringement of copyright, has, as we 
anticipated, come before a higher Court 
on appeal in Mabe v. Connor. The case 
came before the Lord Chief Justice, Mr. 
justice Bighani and Mr. Justice Walton 
sitting as a Divisional Court, and Mr. 
Danckwerts, K.C.. appeared on behalf of 
the appellants. The Lord Chief Justice, 
in giving judgment, said the Court was 
bound by the decision of the Court of 
Appeal in Boosey v. White, and that the 
Magistrate's decision must be upheld. 
Mr. Justice Bigham expressed himself as 
not satisfied that the rolls did not con- 
stitute a piracy, but the decision of the 
Court of Appeal precluded him from so 
deciding. The appeal was, therefore, 
dismissed, but leave for further appeal 
was granted. 

The S. and S. Practical 
Object Drawing Handbooks 

Messrs. Schofiexd & Sims, Ltd., of 
Huddersfield, are the publishers of a 
series of Handbooks for Teachers on 
Practical Object Drawing. Mr. R. E. 
Green is the author. The series com- 
prises a six years' graduated course, and 
one of the chief features is the introduc- 
tion of natural objects in place of the 
artificial objects so often used. How 
much more interested children would be 
if, instead of piling up a cone, a cube, a 
triangle, and a few other shapes, the 
teacher were to give them some such 
article as an inkstand, pocket-book, cup 
and saucer, jam-pot, flower-pot, &c. ? 
This is a sensible and most useful series. 

Another useful manual for teachers 
is Book HI. of Physical Exercise, for 
children from 12 — 14 years of age. It 
is illustrated with good photographs, and 
with Books I. and II., should be in great 
demand. All interested should send for a 
copy of Messrs. Schofield & Sims' general 
catalogue of School Series, just issued, 
dated January— March, 1909.

health and good temper, and we welcome 
the second revised and improved edition 
of " The 250 Recipe Cookery Book," just 
published at is. by Messrs. Evans Bros., 
Byron House, Fleet Street. The title is 
" The 250 Recipe Cookery Book," and in 
addition to these recipes, each of which 
represents an appetising, inexpensive 
dish, there are valuable hints on methods 
of roasting, boiling, pastry-making, &c. 
We wish a copy were in use in eyery 
kitchen — no book would add so much to 
the gaiety of our nation — and we want it 
when our skies are so leaden, like under- 
done pastry. 

Booksellers Sell Nearly 
30,000 Copies of 
The People's •'Gladstone" 

Booksellers may care to know that 
nearly 30,000 copies of the Daily Chronicle 
popular edition of Lord Morley's " Life 
of Gladstone " have been sold through 
" the trade " since it was published at the 
end of October. These figures — which, 
of course, do not include direct individual 
sales — show how effectively booksellers 
have handled the edition, and how well 
worth their while it was to do so. They 
also show what may be done during the 
spring with a biography so full of vitality 
as the " Gladstone," in a five-shilling 

An Educational Work on 

Mr. G. M. Doolittle, author of " Scientific 
Queen - Rearing," has just published 
another work, which will doubtless be very 
useful to bee-keepers in this country as 
well as hi his own country, the United 
States. The new brochure is entitled 
" A Year's Work in an Out-Apiary " 
(61 pp., price 50 cents), and is published 
by the A. I. Root Company, of Medina, 
U.S.A.. publishers of the semi-monthly, 
Gleanings in Bee Culture. This illustrated 
work is devoted to practical bee-keeping 
in out-apiaries for beginners as well as 
experts, and shows how it is possible to 
get an average of 114 pounds of honey 
per colony even in a poor season. We 
know nothing about bee-keeping, but it 
is one of the oldest of human industries 
and a fascinating one also. Mr. Doolittle 
is an enthusiast, and as a natural con- 
sequence his work is done from the heart 
as well as the head ; it fairly hums with 
good suggestions all through. 

It opens in this pleasant fashion : 

" The sun rose bright and clear on 
the morning of April 14th. 1905, the 
morning of my sixtieth birthday ; and 
as old Sol peered over the hill-top hi 
all his golden splendour, kissing the 
swelling buds and cheering all ani- 
mated nature with the intuition that 
' Sprhig has come,' I proposed to Mr. 
Clark, my partner, that we go over to 
the out-apiary, five miles distant, and 
set the bees out of the cellar, the bees 
in the home apiary having been set 
out three days previously." 

As in Medina, Ohio, the roads are 
under deep mud or snow six mouths out 
of the twelve, Mr. Doolittle cannot use 
his auto all the time for getting about, so 
he uses it as a motor for the grindstone, 
churn, feed-cutter, buzz-saw, &c. 

Religious Tract Society 
Cricket Club 

Fifth Annual dinner 

Thanks to the generosity of Mr. James 
Bowden (R.T.S. Lay Secretary and Pre- 
sident of the Cricket Club) 04 members of 
the staff spent a most enjoyable evening 
at Anderton's Hotel, Fleet Street, on 
Wednesday evening, January 6th. The 

Cricket Club had a record season in 1908 
— viz., 12 wins and 2 losses. Mr. Wm. 
Gribble won the Batting Prize, and Mr. 
R. Gray the Bowling Prize. The well- 
served dinner was followed by the usual 
speeches. After dinner oratory is often 
a thing to be endured and not enjoyed, 
but on tliis as on former occasions of the 
Club's dinners, the speakers were in great 
form. After the toast of " The King and 
Queen " had been loyally received, Mr 

G. T. Betts, hi his usual able manner, 
proposed " The Health of the R.T.S. 
Counnittee." The Rev. A. R. Buckland, 
M.A., recently returned from Cliina, pro- 
posed " The Health of the Staff," and the 
Rev. R. C. Earle, M.A., responded hi a 
very pleasant and humorous maimer. 
" The R.T.S. C.C.," the toast of the 
evening, was proposed by the Editor of 
The Boy's Own Paper, Mr. G. A. Hutchi- 
son, hi a very genial maimer, Mr. Wm. 
Gribble responding.' " The Health of the 
President " w r as proposed by the Rev. C. 

H. Irwin, M.A., and Mr. E. Henderson 
Smith thanked the visitors for their 
attendance. The visitors were the 
artistes, who supplied a very fine even- 
ing's music. The part singing of the 
Occasional Glcemen was most tastefully 
rendered. Mr. Frederick Addison's songs 
and encores were admirably sung. The 
same criticism may be extended also to 
the efforts of Mr. Stewart Gardner. Mr. 
Wilfred Seton, and Mr. William Gribble. 
The singing of " Auld Lang Syne " 
brought a most delightful evening to 
an end. 

Education on the Nile 

"So you are just back from a circular 
tour of the Mediterranean, including 
Egypt and the Nile. Well, well '. " 

The speaker was George Ade. Shaking 
the hand of the brown young farmer, he 
went on : — 

" I know the sort of conversation you 
heard over there — in Egypt, say. Listen 
and I'll tear off a yard or two. It ran like 
this : 

" ' Isn't it lovely ? Cleopatra lived 
here, and Moses, and Pharaoh. It makes 
your head swim, doesn't it ? ' 

" ' I guess it's tlie bad air. It hurts 
my head, too. Is that the Nile ? ' 

" ' Look at the crocodile basking hi 
j the sun.' 

" ' Is he basking ? Oh, Maude, dear, 
by the way, is your new basque to have 
the fashionable long sleeves ? ' 

" ' Gee, there's the Sphinx ! ' 

" ' And that must be the desert. But 
I I don't see any caravans.' 

" ' No. How provoking ! ' 

" ' Isn't it nice to travel on a railroad 
j where they don't have any soot ? ' 

" ' Yes. and do yoq notice the balmy, 
spicy smell ? ' 

" ' Yes. indeed. Just like cloves, 
isn't it ? What can it be ? I'll ask the 
brakeman. Brakeman I ' 

" ' Yes, madam ? ' 

" ' Where does that spicy smell come 
from ? ' 

" ' From the engine, ma'am. We don't 
j use nothing but mummies for fuel 011 this 
1 here line.' " — Philadelphia Bulletin.

"America at College"* 

This is an interesting book and meets a 
distinct need. It is too common to find 
Englishmen otherwise well informed who 
know nothing whatever of American 
Universities beyond the bare names of 
two or three. This ignorance is due not 
to indifference, but to the lack of any 
accessible information. Mr. Risk supplies 
that information at first hand. He gives 
us, as the result of a recent tour, chapters 
on each of the great Universities, on a 
typical small college, and on four leading 
women's colleges. The book is brightly 
written and will be read with advantage 
by graduates of British Universities, who 
will find much to admire and something 
to envy in American University develop-

Glasgow Book Trade Notes 

By " Mungo " 

A GOOD part of the business done on the 
week following Christmas Day, and, in 
Scotland, also that following New Year's 
Day, is made up of exchanging volumes 

1 that have been given hi duplicate, or 
that have not suited the literary tastes 
of the recipients. This latter reason 
brings forward the old question of whose 
taste is consulted in buying a gift book. 

i and, for the purpose in hand, this specially 
applies to juvenile literature. 

Judging from some of the volumes 
that find their way back to the bookshop 
some of our young friends must have- 
been grievously disappointed with Santa 
Claus' visit ; but it is a difficult problem 

I to solve. 

It is becoming more customary for 
children to be allowed to choose their 
own presents from the shelves, and the 
delight they have in doing this no doubt 
makes up for what is lost in anticipation 
of Christmas morning ; but parents and 

! aunts and uncles who prefer to follow 

! the other method often fall back on 
books they found delight in hi their 

j " golden age," and this habit explains 
in some measure how some titles always 

! appear in the lists. And without decrying 

j these particular books, it is quite legiti- 
mate to suppose that they might not be 
so suitable for the child as some of the 
newer ones that are passed over ; at 
least, the newer books are often more 
attractively produced than the old ones, 
and this counts for a good deal with 

This, of course, does not apply to the 
classics of the children's bookshelf, and 

I " Robinson Crusoe," " Swiss Family," 
and " Treasure Island " will always hold 
their place in the hearts of boys and girls ; 

j and the girl of to-day very often shows a 
decided preference for boys' books, and 
would much rather have a Henty or a 
Ballantyne than anything written by 
one of their own sex. 

The animal story and books of a 
mechanical nature are becoming more 

j and more popular. Thompson Seton and 
W. J. Long have already made their 
name as writers of animal stories, and as 
the chief end of a tale is to give delight 
the recent discussion as to the veracity of 
our authors need not trouble us. A. J. 
Dawson's splendid dog story, " Finn the 

I Wolfhound," was a notable addition to 
this season's hst and proved itself a 

Captain Brereton and Herbert Strang 
go far to satisfy the Glasgow boy's tliirst 
for something new in adventure, and 
amongst the more recent writers of 
girls' books, Christina Gowans Whyte 

i holds a good place. Amy Le Feuvre. 

! Mrs. Vaizey, L. T. Meade and Louisa 
Alcott are always popular. 

The larger illustrated editions of 
" Alice in Wonderland " and " A Child's 
Garden of Verses " have been much in 
demand ; but Tenniel's " Alice " holds 
its own against all-comers. The older 

! Annuals have shown a falling off this 
season, competition with newer books 
with more coloured illustration telling 
against them, much as the rag book is 
telling on the paper toy book.

From children to schoolmaster is but 
a step, and some weeks ago, when con- 
gratulating a teacher on the approach of 
tlie Christmas vacation, I remarked that 
at t generous holiday would be much 
appreciated by booksellers. His reply 
was to the effect that he needed a rest 
more than the bookseller did, as his 
work was not manual labour. It seems 
that pedagogues, while sure of their 
own, are not agreed as to the bookseller's 
social standing, for some days later I was 
told that the daughter of a bookseller, 
who is also a picture framer, had been 
admitted to a private academy on the 
strength of the bookselling side of her 
father's business, the mistress looking 
upon bookselling as a profession but 
upon picture framing as a trade. I am 
left wonderhig whether I am a profes- 
sional man or a labourer. 

Mr. Mackenzie Bell's Poems 

Now Used in schools 

Mr. Mackenzie Bell has composed a 
long preface, with some touches of auto- 
biography, for the definitive book of his 
verse entitled " Poems," to be published 
at once from 4, .Southampton Row, 
London, W.C., price 2s. 6d. The volume 
will be divided into sections, entitled, 
respectively, " Poems of Nature," 
" Poems of Consolation and Religion," 
" Poems and Sonnets concerning 
Shakespeare," " Pictures of Travel," 
" Poems Founded on History," " Mis- 
cellaneous Sonnets," " Poems of 
L,ove." " Lyrical and Other Poems." 
" Humorous Poems," and " Poems for 
School Recitations, Standards I. and II.," 
the latter necessitated by the fact that 
his work is now used as an " unseen " 
reading book in schools. In the essay 
above mentioned, the author says : 

" Early Wordsworth moved me in 
some sort ; but it was not the poet of 
the great ' Ode to Immortality,' nor 
the consummate sonneteer ; nor the 
writer of the more exquisite Lyrical 
Ballads of whom I was cognisant ; it 
was the Wordsworth of his " pedes- 
trian poems." Surely no other exalted 
poet of the world ever gave forth so 
much below liis proper level. About 
the same time, as the result of hearing 
Matthew Arnold speak one evening in 
Liverpool, I read some of his poetry, 
and it took hold of me. But, here 
again, I liked him for the wrong 

Mr. Mackenzie Bell then goes on to 
explain briefly how he sought to remedy 
his defects, and how great was the 
influence of his friend, Mr. Theodore 
Watts-Dun ton, the writer of " Ahvyn," 
to whom the volume is dedicated.

Letters to the Editor 

[We do not hold ourselves responsible for the 
opinions expressed by our Correspondents .] 


Dear Sir, — Your issue of the 19th ult. 
contains aspersions on the international 
language, Esperanto, which (as an Espe- 
rantist) I trust you will give me an oppor- 
tunity to refute. Your correspondent, 
who sends you a paragraph of Esperanto 
selected for abuse because of the r umber 
of times the letter " j " occurs in it, 
omits to inform your readers that this 
consonant is pronounced in Esperanto 
not as the English " j " but as the English 
" y." When this is understood, the con- 
tention that Esperanto sounds ugly be- 
cause it contains many " j's " falls to the 
ground. In point of fact, those who have 
I heard good Esperanto speakers inva- 
riably say that the language sounds like 
Italian — confessedly the most beautiful of 
the national languages. The question as 
to whether " j " is a nice letter to look at 
is purely one of taste. In most editions 
of Latin books it is foimd convenient to 
use it, the letter being then pronounced 
by modern Latinists as in Esperanto — 
e.g. (Latin), jam = jam (Esperanto). The 
origin of the English prejudice against 
the letter " j " is. no doubt, the fact that 
it denotes in the English alphabet a com- 
pound consonantal sound. Esperanto, 
however, is not constructed solely for 
English ideas, being truly international : 
and the Esperanto value of the symbol 
" j " is the one which over a hundred 
millions of people, including Germans, 
Poles, Dutch, Russians. Bohemians, Scan- 
dinavians and Italians, attach to it. In 
Spanish it has a somewhat similar sound, 
and French and English, which differ 
among themselves in the sound they give 
to it, are the only widely -spoken lan- 
guages to which it appears strange. 
Apart from this, the defaming of a lan- 
guage by castigating a selected para- 
graph constructed " ad hoc " is a puerile 
expedient, which could be employed with 
equal injustice to prove by citation of 
such sentences as ' ' Peter picked a peck of 
pepper," that English is afflicted with a 
superabundance of initial " p's." The 
great matter wherein so many would-be 
improvers of Esperanto have deceived 
themselves is that the language, though 
it has been — for European consumption — 
presented as if it were a flexional lan- 
guage, is really an agglutinative language 
like Turkish and many languages of Asia, 
this being, of course, the secret of the 
success of Esperanto in the East, the 
Japanese having an excellent Esperanto 
magazine, and an Esperanto grammar, 
&c." in Arabic, having now appeared. 
Esperanto consists, therefore, entirely 
of roots, which are put together without 
internal inflexion, as required by the 
sense. If, therefore " o " signifies a 
noun and " j " gives the idea of plurality; 
the combined notion of a noun in the 
plural is expressed by "oxj" = "oj." 
There is a very essential difference be- 
tween this system and a system under 
which " o " is changed to " i " hi the 
plural, for we must either regard this 
latter as an inflexion or make two 
separate definitions of substantive ter-

niinations, where Esperanto has one only. 
This is but one instance in which the 
alleged simplification of points in Espe- 
ranto turns out on inspection to be a 
complication. Furthermore, every effort 
has been made in Esperanto to keep the 
number of roots in common use down to 
the lowest possible number. It is not 
till one has practised it that one realises 
what a tremendous amount of meaning 
can be expressed by the excellent selection 
of fundamental roots which we have in 
Esperanto, and because Esperanto, like 
English, German or Greek, makes com- 
pound words from its own roots if pos- 
sible, many international words are really 
rendered superfluous to Esperanto. This 
moderation and economy of material is 
greatly to the advantage of those users 
of Esperanto, often poor and dwelling in 
remote places, who cannot afford large 
and costly books. This fundamental 
vocabulary thus forms the staple of the 
Esperanto language just as the thousand 
or two of Saxon words hi common speech 
do in English, while among them comes 
and go as as the topics of the occasion 
demand a " floating population " of inter- 
national words, which, if they survive, 
are ultimately accepted into the complete 
dictionaries in the form which experience 
has shown to be preferable, laktuko being, 
for instance, the accepted form for 
"lettuce." These then are the "2,000 
new words " which one of your correspon- 
dents uses as a bogey. They are only 
new in the sense that they have lately 
been put into a dictionary. As every 
fresh word is a fresh difficulty, because it 
is one thing more to remember, Espe- 
rantists use up old material if possible, 
and this is why "to waver (in one's 
mind) " was used instead of hezit-i (to 
hesitate). As to " akuz-i " (to accuse), 
the word kulpigi {ie , to put in fault) 
really corresponds to the circumstances, 
as Continental law considers the accused 
as faulty until he shows he is not. In 
England (fortunately for usEsperantists), 
akuzi is not the same tiling as kulpigi. 
Esperanto is on the right road, the only 
one which can lead to success. — Yours

of an anagram. He quotes, as a sample 
from my new Puzzle Book, the answer 
I sent to a competition question in 
Truth, " Why is every angler, ipso facto, 
an Ananias ? " My answer took the 
form of an anagram, in which exactly the' 
same letteis are used, and each is used once, 
and only once : "A liar, he spins gay 
fancies to a woven yarn." 

Your reviewer, ridiculing this, pro- 
poses the question, " Why is every 
anagram maker, ipso facto, an ass ? " 
and proposes, as an answer by anagram 
" An anagram maker, ipso facto, wastes 
his own time with oth ers." This, as you 

will see at a glance, is no anagram at all. 
The letters of one sentence are found hi 
the other, but some are used many times 
over, and whole words recur , which is never 
allowed in an anagram. If he was merely 
" pulling my leg," I have no desire to 
kick, but am, — Sincerely yours, 

(The Rev.) A. Cyrix, Pearson. 

[The fact, is our reviewer of the Rev. A. 
Cyril Pearson's work is an angler, and was 
not pulling anybody's leg, only kicking 
back.— Ed. P.C.]

Notices of Books 

From Messrs. Allman & Son. — " Sketch 
of the Tudor Period," by S. M. Toyne, 
M.A. This slight sketch is an aid to, and 
not a substitute for, the reading of history. 
The contents are so arranged as to show the 
correlation of important events in the 
period of history dealt with ; " no fact 
ought to be regarded separately — its 
importance rests on its bearing on other 

From Al-Mokattam Printing Office, Cairo. — 
" Egyptian Arabic Primer," by W. A. 
Betts, M.D., CM., F.R.C.S. Second 
• edition of a booklet intended to be of 
assistance to those who are learning the 
elements of Egyptian colloquial Arabic. 
The system of transliteration closely 
follows that used by Spiro in his excellent 
English-Arabic vocabulary. 

From Mr. Edward Arnold. — " A Parson 
in the Australian Bush," by C. H. S. 
Matthews, M.A. The author's aim has 
been to give as vivid a picture of bush life 
as possible, and only incidentally to deal 
with what he believes to be the reasons 
for the failure of the Anglican Church, 
and every other form of organised Chris- 
tianity, in Australia. It might be feared 
that the book would, in consequence, be 
too " religious " to suit the majority of 
readers, but such is not the case. The 
author has succeeded in depicting for us 
the characteristics of Australian life, full 
of humour and pathos, which should 
materially help to remove our general 
ignorance, and should be doubly welcome 
at a time when interest in our Colonies 
is steadily growing. 

From the Same. — " Latin Prose Composi- 
tion," by W. R. Hardie, M.A., Professor of 
Humanity in the University of Edinburgh. 
Oxford men still remember the brilliant 
young Scot who, a quarter of a century ago 
entered Balliol as scholar, literally swept 
the boards of the University on the 
classical side and became Fellow and 
Tutor of his College at twenty-two. Con- 
tributions to the higher scholarship were 
confidently expected from him, but hither- 
to, if we except a volume of Essays, he has 
been content with mere routine work. 
The present book is the direct result of 

that routine work ; i.e., it is the outcome 
of Professor Hardie' s long experience in 
teaching both at Oxford and Edinburgh. 
His purpose is to inculcate the value of 
literary qualities as distinct from mere 
grammatical accuracy. He praises Verse 
Composition because it " has this great 
merit and value, that instead of merely 
remembering things and reproducing them 
exactly, as he is constantly doing, the 
pupil for once produces something of his 
own that has an artistic shape." He sees 
no reason why Prose Composition " should 
not have a similar merit or attractiveness " ; 
and it is to aid advanced pupils in de- 
veloping their artistic sense that he has 
written this book. We may say at once 
that it is excellently designed to accom- 
plish its author's purpose, that is to enable 
a student to view a piece of Latin prose as 
Cicero might conceivably have viewed it. 
The volume is divided into two parts 
(which may be bought separately), the first 
containing notes on Grammar, Style and 
Idiom ; the second a selection of passages 
for translation into Latin. To see how 
effectively Professor Hardie handles his 
subject the intending purchaser has but 
to glance at the section on Style. Es- 
pecially good are the pages on Metaphor 
and Rhythm. Equally suggestive is the 
chapter on the Resources of Expression in 
Latin. Indeed we are disposed' to ..think 
that this and the chapter on Style are, out 
and away the best of their kind that have 
appeared in England dor many years. 
The passages for translation have been 
chosen with the judgment of a brilliantly 
successful teacher ; the collection of moral, 
philosophical and literary criticisms being 
particularly appropriate. But the whole 
book is admirable, and may be recom- 
mended without qualification to teachers 
and advanced students. 

From The British Esperanto Association.- — 

" The Esperanto Manual," by Margaret L. 
Jones, F.B.E.A. A complete guide to 
Esperanto in the form of twenty-five 
lectures specially adapted to the require- 
ments of pupils in evening classes. It 
contains exercises, anecdotes, aids to 
conversational practice, commercial letters 
and guides to correspondence, literary 
articles by foreign contributors and others, 
short poems, complete grammar and a 

vocabulary. " The Esperanto Teacher," 

by Helen Fryer, is now in its third edition 
(revised). As a simple course for non- 
grammarians it has proved very useful. 

From The Clarendon Press, Oxford. — 
" School Algebra," by W. E. Paterson, 
M.A., B.Sc. The main object of this work 
is to provide a book on modern lines that is 
suitable for the beginner and can be con- 
tinued in use for higher forms. In the 
order adopted and in general treatment the 
suggestions of the Mathematical Asso- 
ciation have been largely followed. The 
early chapters are very full in explanation, 
and are written in simple, even colloquial, 
language. By means of examples, some 
worked in the text, others set as exercises, 
the student is led to discover or verify the 
fundamental laws of Algebra. 

From Messrs. Dawbarn & Ward, Ltd. — 

" The Photo Miniature Series : No. 93, 
Development (Gaslight) Papers." This 
volume deals exhaustively with the whole 
art of print-making by artificial light, using 
a paper which requires development. The 
different varieties are described, a table of 
gaslight papers is given, the little difficul- 
ties of exposure explained, with formula.' 
and methods for development. Indis- 
pensable to all photographers. 

From Messrs. J. M. Dent & Co. — " Nature 
Study," by J. R. Aiusworth Davis, M.A., 
F.C.P. It is being gradually recognised 
on all hands that the study of Nature is a 
necessary part of the equipment of all

educated people, and Principal Davis's 
reader for the higher classes of schools just 
answers the purpose of training the | 
faculties of the young. It gives in simple, 
non-technical language a connected sketch 
of the natural history of plants and animals. 
Common or familiar examples are chosen 
when practicable, while many beautiful 
nature photographs by Mr. Hugh Main, 
B.Sc, have been used as illustrations — 
"Satires Epitres " and " L'Art Poetique 
de Boileau." Preface by Augustin Filon. 
This is the latest addition to " Les Clas- 
siques Francais " series, edited by H. 
Warner Allen. 

From Mr. Henry J. Drane. — " After the 
Confession, and Other Verses," by Adolphe 
Danziger. A little book of love poems, 
after the manner of Henreich Heine, many 
of which are of a sensuous nature. 

From the Same. — " General Knowledge of j 
Common Things," by Amy B. Cowan. A i 
little book of questions and answers, em- 
bodying knowledge of common things 
under daily observation. It is intended 
for the use of very young children. 

From Messrs. Duckworth & Co. — " Sir 

Richard Tangye," by Dr. Stuart J. Reid. I 
The biography of a man who started from 
nothing and attained to wealth and honours 
must always be interesting. But Sir R. 
Tangye was much more than a mere 
successful man of business. He had a 
resolute spirit, a cultivated intellect, a 
sympathetic and sunny temperament, and | 
a natural gift for friendship. The record 
of his life therefore makes in the practised 
hands of Dr. Reid a fascinating book, 
which touches at many points the religious 
and political movements of the time, and 
is brightened by not a few anecdotes. There 
is a portrait and a good index. 
From the Same. — " Handbook of Geography : 
Descriptive and Mathematical," by Emil 
Reich. Vol. 2. In this learned volume 
it is shown, first, how we succeeded in deter- 
mining correctly the geometrical situation 
of a given town or hill on the globe ; and 
secondly, how we succeed in locating this 
situation on a given map. The advantages 
to be derived from a study of this handbook 
are such as are not easily to be met with 
elsewhere. There are a number of ex- 
planatory figures in the text. 

From Messrs. Luzac & Co. — " Semitic 
Magic : Its Origins and Development," 
by R. Campbell-Thompson, M.A. (Cantab.). 
It is difficult to understand the attitude 
of the British Museum authorities in 
refusing to allow the author of this work 
to study the unpublished cuneiform 
Assyrian tablets in the British Museum. 
" Hence the material at hand for a study 
of a most interesting branch of comparative 
religion is more imperfect than I could 
have wished." The subjects dealt with 
include " Demons and Ghosts," " Demo- 
niac Possession and Tabu," " Sympathetic 
Magic," " The Atonement Sacrifice." The 
work is not only of great value to the 
student of the special subjects with which 
it treats, but also to students of the Bible 
for the light it throws on many of the 
peculiar customs referred to in the Old 
Testament, and helps to explain the 
hidden reason why these customs existed. 
To student of Man throughout t te ages 
this work must also be most valuable. 
There is a really splendid index, w.iich will ] 
open its wealth of information to all kinds ! 
of searchers after knowledge. Under " A," | 
for instance, we find references to Ants in 
Magic ; Alkali in Magic ; Arm in Magic ; ( 
Ash in Magic ; Ass in Magic, and so on I 
through t'\e whole alphabet. Between 
the superstition which amounts to a half 
regret at seeing the new moon through a 
glass window and the superstition w ich is 
related! to every act and thought of life the | 

distance is indeed great. They believed 
that every being had innumerable demons ; 
we seem to be losing our belief in the 
existence even of one for the whole lot of 
us. Since the above was in type, we were 
amused from a private letter of Mr. 
W. Clark Russell to find he pretends to 
believe we are in for a bad time, because 
this year commenced on a Friday. He 
says it is his only superstition, but that 
nothing would induce him to commence 
any important business on a Friday ; he 
even seems to regret that the Messina 
earthquake did not happen on a Friday, as 
it clearly ought to have done in the 
interests of the " Friday " superstition. 

From Messrs. George Philip & Son, Ltd. — 

" Lands Beyond the Channel," by H. J. 
Mackinder, M.A. The Mediterranean and 
Europe are dealt with in the present 
volume ; the geography of the countries 
is first dealt with, and the history is then 
told in such a manner as to comment on 
that geography. There are one hundred 
and fifty-six illustrations and nine coloured 

From Messrs. Hugh Rees, Ltd. — " The 

Merchant of Venice," edited by George F. 
Chambers, F.R.A.S. Mr. Chambers is of 
the opinion that Bowdler " did not go 
nearly far enough " in mangling Shake- 
speare's plays for the consumption of the 
" Lady Reader." The present version is 
prepared for private parties of readers 
sitting round a winter's fire. It can be 
read aloud in about two hours. The 
abridgment is certainly very judicious, 
the type employed is large, and a little 
incidental music is provided at the end 
by Cotsford Dick. 

From Mr. Ernest J. Rutland. — " Electrical 
Terms and Phrases," by Ernest J. Rutland. 
A phonographic phrase book of common 
phrases and terms met with in the elec- 
trical, electro-mechanical and general en- 
gineering professions, written in the 
briefest reporting style. A series of 
engineering letters, counted for dictation 
purposes, are appended. 

From Messrs. Schofield & Sons, Ltd. — ■ 
" Story Readers " — an entirely new series 
of reading books for youngsters. No. 1, 
entitled " At Duty's Call," by W. Hislop, 
fully illustrated by W. H. Groome, is suit- 
able for children from ten to twelve years 
of age. No. 2, " Toot-toot ! " by G. R. 
Bennett, illustrated by W. H. Croome, for 
children from seven to nine years of age. 
No. 3, " Norse Stories," retold by Mrs. 
Plant, with coloured illustrations by 
J. H. Lunn, for cliildreu from eight to ten. 
" Children of the New Forest," abridged 
and adapted by M. T. Yates, is the first 
of a series of juvenile books, entitled 
" Old Friends With New Faces." 

From Messrs. William Smith & Sons (Aber- 
deen). — " The Lone Shieling, or The Author- 
ship of the ' Canadian Boat Song ' with other 
Literary and Historical Sketches," by 
G. M. Fraser, Librarian, Public Library, 
Aberdeen. A volume of essays of unusual 
merit and fine literary flavour, some of 
which have appeared in Scotch periodicals. 
Mr. Fraser combines the erudition of the 
book-worm with the attractive qualities 
of the man of feeling and imagination, and 
his book deserves a place upon the shelves 
of all who are interested in Scottish life. 
As to the authorship of the " Canadian 
Boat Song," we think Mr. Fraser makes 
out a very good case for its being the work 
of John Wilson, and written between the 
years 1829 and 1837. 

From The Un versity Tutorial Press Ltd. — 
" The New Matriculation Chemistry," by 
G. H. Bailey, D.Sc, Ph.D., edited by 
William Briggs, LL.D., M.A., &c. This 
book is spcially adapted to the Loudon 
University Matriculation syllabus, and it 
has for some years been found of the 

greatest service to students, by whom its 
merits have been thoroughly tested. 
The work of preparing the fourth edition 
has been entrusted to Mr. H. W. Bausor, 
M.A., who has re-written the Introductory 
Section in order to bring it into closer 
accord with the needs of beginners, and 
has made other necessary alterations. 
Experiments which the student himself 
is intended to perform are printed in 
small type ; those printed in large type 
should be carried out by the teacher. — 
"School Hygiene," by Robert A. Lyster, 
M.A., B.Sc. Dr. Lyster' s handy volume has 
reached a second edition. It provides a 
thorough course in the practical hygiene of 
child and school life ; it is compact, practical, 
and clear, and assumes no previous know- 
ledge of the subject. The second edition con- 
tains an additional chapter on the organisa- 
tion of medical inspection in schools. — 
" Geometry : Theoretical and Practical : 
Part 3," by W. P. Workman, M.A., B.Sc. 
and A. G. Cracknell, M.A., B.Sc, contains 
the subject matter of Euclid, Book XL, 
treated on modern lines, together with an 
elementary account of the Parallelopiped , 
Sphere, and Tetrahedron. The treatment 
of the subject is both practical and concrete. 
From Messrs. Vinton & Co. — " Agricultural 
Almanac and Diary for 1909." A useful 
publication for farmers, landowners and 
others interested in agriculture. The 
calendar is followed by the breeders' 
tables, two pages being devoted to each 
month, forming a handy and useful 
system of keeping breeding records 
throughout the year. There is also a 
concise agricultural review of the j-ear 
1908, where crops, harvesting, statistics, 
yields, and prices are dealt with, followed 
by a calendar of farm work for each 
month throughout the year, and including 
the arable farm, the stock farm, special 
crops, the hop garden, and other phases 
of the ever-changing monthly duties of 
the farmer's vocation.
